Go on a Wendella Sightseeing Company boat ride (400 N. Michigan Ave.). This Best Local cruise will buzz you along the Chicago River in a water taxi, on an architectural cruise and more. The boats often offer Best Local wines, beer, cheese and other snacks to passengers! Hop on board an 11-minute walk from Columbus Plaza in Streeterville.
Take yourself out to the ballgame at Wrigley Field (1060 W. Addison St.)—a 17-minute 22 bus ride from Belden Stratford in Lincoln Park—or U.S. Cellular Field (333 W. 35th St.)—a 19-minute red line el ride from Roosevelt Collection in the South Loop. (Can’t decide who to root for? See the Cubbies if you’re looking for rowdy post-game fun. See the Sox if you want to catch fireworks for a Chicago home run or game win.)
Make it to the Naper Nights Concert Series (523 S. Webster St.) in Naperville for outdoor, suburban fun. Hear live music and enjoy food and drinks from Best Local spots that are also featured in the Taste of Naperville.
