Chicago is considered one of the best cities to be in during the summer. With a street festival each weekend, as well as plenty of outdoor dining options, outdoor concerts at Millennium Park, baseball games, and more it is hard to get bored! Chicago also has an impressive selection of beaches that line the shores of Lake Michigan and are where you can find people playing sand volleyball, sunbathing, and walking or rollerblading along Chicago's 16-mile lakefront path.
