It doesn’t matter if you’ve been in a relationship for five days or fifty years, Chicago is a wonderful city to explore with your significant other!
Sporty Couples will love going to all of the different sporting events that Chicago offers. It doesn’t matter if it’s January or July, you can always catch a sporting event (no pun intended).
Chicago sports teams are kind of a big deal right now, especially when it comes to hockey and baseball. Our Chicago Blackhawks have won three of the past six Stanley Cups and the Chicago Cubs are currently the World Series Champions.
If you come to Chicago when it isn’t baseball season, Wrigleyville offers several restaurants and bars that are always filled with fans. Wrigleyville also has a lot of history that is wonderful to take in as you sightsee.
Would you rather stay on the South Side by the home of the White Sox? Restaurants such as Ricobene’s and Punky’s, just blocks away from Guaranteed Rate Field, are wonderful Chicago staples that you must try during your time in Chicago.
Curious Couples have several different activities to go to:
If you want to see as much of the city as you can, go on a tour. One of the most famous tours is an architectural boat tour. On this tour, you can hop onto a boat that will bring you by some of Chicago’s most interesting buildings. You’ll learn about how the city was rebuilt after the Great Chicago Fire and you’ll take in breathtaking views on the way.
Chicago also has more museums than can be named. The Museum of Science and Industry is the largest science center in the Western Hemisphere. You will be able to learn about the human body, farming, the weather, and so much more.
You can also take a water taxi from Navy Pier to the Museum Campus, which is where the Alder Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum of Natural History, McCormick Place, and Soldier Field are located and are all within walking distance from each other.
After you take the ferry back to Navy Pier, go for a ride on one of the world’s tallest Ferris Wheels, the Centennial Wheel! While in the air, you’ll see some of the best views of Lake Michigan and the city.
Another place you can get great views of the city is on the Sky Deck of the Willis Tower. Standing in a glass box 1,353 feet into the air is slightly terrifying to some people, but you will see amazing views of Chicago.
Outgoing Couples might want to try something a little bit different. Chicago, also known as the Second City, is home of Second City Improv
If you have ever seen a movie or watched television, these names might sound familiar: John and Jim Belushi, Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Amy Pohler, and Steve Carrell. What do all of these famous actors have in common? They all performed at Chicago’s Second City Improv.
Before the show, you should stop by Dick’s Last Resort for lunch or dinner. Here, you’ll eat amazing food while the dining staff yells at you and puts a hat on your head with an insulting quote on it. Don’t worry, though, most of the time the waiters are just joking around, but, as a warning, don’t go here if you’re easily offended.
Dick’s Last Resort is located right on the Chicago River. While you’re enjoying your meal, you are sure to see boats passing on the water.
Couples interested in the Arts will love being in Chicago. From concerts to plays, Chicago always has something going on.
Not only are there musical arenas where concerts are held in Chicago, our sport stadiums also transform into theaters for concerts. The United Center, Wrigley Field, Soldier Field, Toyota Park, and, as of last year, Guaranteed Rate Field all hold concerts through the year. Whether you like classic rock or country, there’s sure to be a venue with someone performing that you’ll love seeing.
Chicago is also home of several theatres where some of the greatest plays and musicals are performed. You can currently catch the 11-time Tony Award Winning Musical,Hamilton, at the Private Bank Theatre. This show originally was supposed to be in Chicago for six months, but later extended to twelve months and again to eighteen months.
Don’t have money to see Hamilton? No worries! You can enter the Hamilton lottery every day to try and win tickets. You can even see one of the several other shows in the city that won’t break your bank.
Have a great time in Chicago!
