Springtime in Chicago
It’s Springtime in Chicago and at The International Kitchen that means our favorite time of year. Yes, we had a snow storm on Sunday, but since then it’s been pretty consistently warm and sunny. The trees are leafing, the birds are singing, and, more importantly, restaurants are putting out their outside tables.
Chicago is a great restaurant city and Chicagoans definitely appreciate dining al fresco once the weather turns nice. And that is reason #1 you should visit Chicago on our foodie tours. But it’s only one of many things that make our hometown so special in the springtime.
Three Things We Love about Spring in Chicago
We love the lakefront all year long, but in the springtime you can finally enjoy it again. miles of bike paths and walking paths right along the shores of Lake Michigan. The city’s recent public arts push means that you’ll find it all peppered with unexpected sculptures as well.
Chicago in spring and summer is all about the events. Whether you want to “Bike the Drive” in May or want to hold off for the many summer music festivals, the city is full of music, dance, movies, food and wine fests, and neighborhood parties.
Springtime also means baseball! Whether you are a “north-sider” or a “south-sider” (Go Sox!) you can cheer on your favorite team come springtime. If you’re up in Wrigleyville for a Cubs game or Bridgeport to see the Sox, you’ll have plenty of great eating options before you hit the ball park as well.
Our 3-night Food Lover’s Chicago is a great way to explore the city. We’ve kept plenty of free time for you to pursue your own interests. The culinary tour includes fabulous accommodations at a downtown hotel, a foodie tour, and a cooking class; and we can make so many suggestions on how to spend the rest of your time! It is also easily customizable if you want a longer (or shorter) trip.
