Fall brings cooler weather, which means you can enjoy a day outside without the sweltering heat of summer. We’ve compiled a list of all the fun things to do in Chicago to get you out of the house and into those giant piles of leaves that were made for jumping into. Plus, getting outside and enjoying fall is the best way to spend your weekend Happy, Naturally.
While the official start of fall isn’t until Friday, Sept. 22, we’re definitely in the fall mindset! We are seeing the leaves start to change, the temperature is slowly dropping and we’re making the change from iced to hot coffee.
A lot of people say that Chicago is the best in the summertime, but we think that it’s just as fabulous during the fall! Time Out Chicago has compiled a great list of things to do in Chicago this fall and we’re excited to share our favorites. To read the post in its entirety, click here.
