Things to Do in Chicago in April

Grab a Drink at a Speakeasy

Grab a Drink at a Speakeasy
Chicago has some rich history when it comes to speakeasies. During the Prohibition Era, they popped up all over the city to serve locals and mobsters. Many can still be found and visited under restaurants and hidden in hotels. At speakeasies, you can order uniquely crafted cocktails in an intimate setting; they may be hard to find, but that's part of the fun and enjoyment!

Explore Navy Pier

Explore Navy Pier
Don't leave Chicago without a visit to Navy Pier! Built in 1916, this 3,300-foot-long pier on the shoreline of Lake Michigan is a huge attraction in the city that's drawn crowds for over 100 years. Year around, you can visit  for fireworks displays, live music, theatre, art exhibitions, mueseums, restaurants, games, rides, and more!
