Welcome to Spacing Out, a blog dedicated to the parks, beaches, and public spaces of Chicago.

Despite how big, friendly, and beautiful the many neighborhoods of Chicago are, people rarely leave their comfort zones. So I'm here to get you to not only appreciate the many aspects of the city that may go unnoticed, but hopefully I can also get you off your bum and out there enjoying everything this city has to offer. (Just read a few of my posts first, k? Thanks!)

If there's a fun or forgotten corner of the city that you know of, and you would like for it to receive some love and attention, just let me know!
