Spring Break in Chicago
Whether your break falls in early or late March, there’s a trillion and ten things to do in Chicago. Instead of listing a trillion ideas for your Chicago excursion, here are a few worthwhile stops we think you should make…
If your vacation coincides with St. Patrick’s Day on March 14th, we advise you to check out the Chicago River being dyed a vibrant green that day. This occasion is followed by the annual parade that rolls through the downtown area and consists of heavy amounts of floats, shamrocks, acrobats, and drunken hecklers of all shapes & sizes. Admission is free.
March also brings madness. College basketball madness that brings out the masses. Join in the revelry as many bars boast good deals as they show multiple games of a usually exciting tournament. Click on the March Madness to see some already projected great specials. Whether you like Illinois, Florida, Texas, or UCLA; most everyone likes cheap booze & food.
When people often ask us what museum they should visit, our first response tends to be the Shedd Aquarium. This place literally beams with life (32,500 animals to be exact). Located in the picturesque Museum campus on the city’s lakefront, you will not regret seeing some of the most amazing creatures that live in this giant Aquarium.
Here’s another gem that you should check out on your Chicago trip. The Skydeck at the Sears Tower lets you hover over the city for a truly breath-taking experience. Try it, basically all you need is a camera and a little courage.
