Things to do

Chicago's mesmerising blend of iconic landmarks, captivating museums, and exciting events creates an unforgettable adventure for families. Explore our top picks for sights and attractions to enjoy with each visit.

Families looking to witness Chicago's iconic attractions can head to major sites, such as Navy Pier, with its Ferris wheel and Children's Museum, and the impressive Willis Tower, boasting phenomenal city views from the Skydeck. Millennium Park is a perfect outing for families, with its interactive Crown Fountain and the famous Cloud Gate sculpture - known as 'The Bean'.

Museums like the Museum of Science and Industry, the Adler Planetarium, and the Field Museum offer exciting, educational experiences tailored for children. Sparing some time to walk through Chicago's incredibly diverse neighbourhoods, such as Lincoln Park and the Magnificent Mile, offers the chance to discover more family-friendly attractions, green spaces, and eateries.

Families that adore animals can't miss the free entrance Lincoln Park Zoo or the Shedd Aquarium, two of Chicago's top wildlife-focused spots. The beachfront location of the city near Lake Michigan adds sandy beaches to the list, perfect for family days out under the sun.

Chicago's vibrant festival scene is a must-experience, with spectacular events like Taste of Chicago, Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, and the Chicago International Film Festival, providing extraordinary entertainment options throughout the year.

When to visit

The best time to visit Chicago with your family is during the spring and autumn, particularly between April and May or September and October, when the weather is warm and pleasant, the crowds are manageable, and festivals are abundant. The variety of experiences available, from beach holidays to city breaks, make it an appealing destination for families all-year round.

Summer brings the buzz of peak tourist season, significantly higher lodging rates and temperatures ranging from high 50s to mid-80s. Winter, on the other hand, ushers in low hotel and airfare rates, as temperatures drop into negatives and outdoor attractions have reduced hours. Always plan your holidays around term times, to avoid interruptions to the kids' school attendance.
