What to do and how to get around Chicago

The 2018 ALE Excursions Conference Sub-Committee has been hard at working finding interesting (and tasty!) things to do while you are in Chicago! We have created an "Activities Report" that you can peruse at your leisure. It includes great restaurants, things to do around the hotel, and things to do throughout Chicago. We hope you get some great ideas and are able to explore this amazing city! 

Here's good place to start to figure out how to get around Chicago! 

Chicago Park District

This is where you can find all events going on in Chicago's city parks-they even have outdoor movies on the beaches during the summer!

Lincoln Park Zoo

Who doesn't love the zoo-and it's FREE!

Museum Campus has the Adler Planetarium, Field Museum, and Shedd Aquarium so that's fun (and convenient)!

Chicago History Museum

You'll find GREAT tours around town here too!

Navy Pier
This is Chicago's MOST popular tourist attraction!

The Skydeck Chicago


Get out on the ledge...if you dare!

360 Chicago Observation Deck 

The BEST views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan!

Chicago Trolley and Double-Decker bus tours
Who doesn't love trolleys and double-decker buses?

Victory Gardens Theater
See a show AND visit the place where John Dillinger (bank robber) was gunned down by the FBI!

Buddy Guy's Legends
Go have fun at this immensely popular blues joint!

The Green Mill
Go get your jazz fix here!

FTW Chicago
