With
18-miles of Lakefront trail what are you waiting for? Bike and Roll Chicago

cycle. The city will literally open up right before you along the natural curves
of Lake Michigan. Bike and Roll also offers historical and presidential rides
that will take you to President Barack Obama's Hyde Park home.

Softball and Beach
Volleyball

Pick
your poison. Are you a 12" or a 16" kind of person or perhaps you would prefer
the sand? Whatever your flavor, spring offers you the opportunity to get back
into the game. With an assortment of leagues and sport social clubs you're
bound to find one that fits your style of play. From beer leagues to
competitive play Chicago has it all and then some.

Navy Pier

What
better way to get out and do something "real Chicago" than riding the Ferris

Fair) and hosted the debut of the world's first essential fair ride, the Ferris
wheel.

genuine crowd pleaser. Restaurants across the city take advantage of the spring
and summers temperate climate to provide diners with fresh air and a European
style experience.
