Good news! After months of feeling like it would never it end, it appears that winter, in fact, is over. As the weather warms for good and we enter the summer season, everyone is excited to get outside and do something fun. At AmpliVox, we call Chicago home, and know our way around the city’s marquee attractions and activities, so we thought we would put together a list of 10 of the city’s must-do attractions to complete over the summer, whether you are a resident or tourist.

1. Navy Pier—The number one tourist destination in the state, Navy Pier, like Chicago itself, offers something for everyone. An array of dining options like Harry Caray’s Tavern and Capi’s Italian Kitchen, an IMAX theater, the Chicago Children’s Museum, and dozens of unique shops throughout the concourse ensures a full day of fun. A ride on the famous Chicago Ferris wheel is also required for unparalleled views of the Chicago skyline. Navy Pier also puts on arguably the finest fireworks show in the city every Wednesday and Saturday night from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

7. Willis Tower Sky Deck—The best views in the city can be had atop one of the tallest buildings in the world. Visiting the 103rd floor Willis Tower SkyDeck on a clear summer day will give you an unmatched visual experience. Feeling like a daredevil? Stop out onto The Ledge, a glass box that extends beyond the building to offer completely unobstructed views of the city, including below.
