The days are longer, the breezes warmer and outside is definitely the place to be. So grab the calendar and make plans to get reacquainted with summer... one hiking trail, golf course and roller coaster at a time.
Paddle, sail, or cruise your way to stunning skyline views.
Think the skyline views are great from Lakeshore Drive? Try seeing them from Lake Michigan on a ship straight out of a pirate movie. Or during a sunset cruise down the Chicago River. Suddenly, Chicago seems even more stunning.
Now is the perfect time to explore the great outdoors on foot. That’s when you uncover magical settings, experience the stillness of nature and rediscover a side of summer you forgot, or perhaps never knew existed.
From the PGA toGolf Digest, the experts agree: Illinois is home to some of the best places to golf in the country. With courses dotted along a trail, designed by golf legends, and home to PGA championships, Illinois is the perfect golf getaway destination.
Summer brings out the kid in all of us. School’s out, it doesn’t get dark until late, and the little ones are always ready to head to a park and play. And if that park includes a rollercoaster or a corkscrew water slide, then all the better.
