May is the perfect month to visit if you are looking to enjoy warmer temperatures without being uncomfortably hot. Head out to enjoy some fun under the sun!

Things to Do in Chicago in May

Go on a Night Tour

Go on a Night Tour
Chicago doesn't stop buzzing at night, so why should you stop exploring it? Switch things up and venture the city on a night tour! From ghosts and riverwalk tours by foot, to architecture tours by boat, there's lots to see! Book with a tour guide, or go the independent route with self-guided and audio tours.

Spend a Day at Millennium Park

Spend a Day at Millennium Park
Millennium Park was converted from an industrial wasteland into a 25 acre park. Thoughtfully filled with beautiful landscaping, architecture and art, the park is known to host events free and open to the public like concerts, performances, and movie screenings. Weather you want to stroll and explore or just bring a picnic blanket to relax, this is must when visiting Chicago.
Events may be canceled due to the coronavirus. Please confirm with all ticket vendors that events are still active.
