Fall Activities for Chicagoans

Fall in the Midwest, especially Chicago, is purely spectacular.  The humidity is gone, the frigid temperatures haven’t arrived yet and just about everyone in Chicagoland gets behind the Monsters of the Midway. Even better? There are so many fun and budget friendly ways for your family to celebrate the season, from going on a nature scavenger hunt to creating a caramel apple bar together–even following a trail of over 1,000 jack-o-lanterns. Be sure to bookmark this list, as well as our Fall in Chicago Bucket List, so you and your family can make the  most of the season.
