5 Best Things to Do in Chicago (That You Won’t Find on Any Other LIst)

  1. Taste the Rainbow (Cone): Why have one flavor when you can have them all? The Sapp family opened Rainbow Cone in 1926, and now have multiple locations including Navy Pier. It’s packed with chocolate, pistachio, strawberry, Palmer House, and orange sherbet. 
  2. Take The Chicago Murder Mystery Tour: Explore the city and solve a crime with this interesting and interactive tour through Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. See the original playboy mansion, and discover how Chicago was built through crimes!
  3. Win at Bar Trivia: While it’s a mainstay popular across the world, Chicago’s bar trivia scene is unrivaled in diversity. You can find events that are entirely themed on shows like Friends or The Simpsons, or maybe your favorite band? 
  4. Live Music Every Night: The birthplace of Chicago Blues, Chicago has no shortage of live music, which can be found everynight at Andy’s Jazz Club, The Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, or simply walking along State Street. 
  5. Find Chinatown’s Hidden Food Court: The Richland Center in Chinatown at 2002 S Wentworth is a secret oasis with hidden treasures. Test out szechuan flavors and more packed underneath an unassuming ground level mall.
