In fact, you won’t be able to scratch the surface of all the fun to be had in this exciting city in just a weekend. Whether you go to Chicago in the summer or winter, it is jam packed with fun activities for you and your friends.
Chicago getaways in the winter means free dance lessons at Millennium Park in the month of February. You may need to dance just to burn off the calories if you’re in Chicago during the city’s restaurant week, which also takes place in February. Sample fare from 150 of the most popular restaurants in the city and then you and your friends can indulge yourself at the restaurant that serves your favorite.
Of course, you’ll want to visit Millennium Park whenever you are in Chicago as there is always something going on there.

There are a great many art and cultural centers in Chicago and you won’t have time to take in all the museums and galleries but you’ll have a grand time trying! If sports is more to your liking, catch the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field and holler your head off.
Chicago is also home to some world class spas and boutiques and you can simply rest, relax, and pamper yourself if you desire. The main thing is that you will be with the ones that mean the most to you and you will have a great time no matter what you decide to do.
