One of my favorite warm weather activities is to walk along the Lakeshore Path, which runs along Lake Michigan.

There are several parks downtown that are accessible from the Lakeshore Path, the most popular being Millennium Park and Grant Park. Millennium Park has a stage where free outdoorconcerts take place throughout the summer.

Adjacent to Millennium Park is the Art Institute of Chicago, which has a large collection of classical and modern art. I especially enjoy the impressionist galleries.

South of Millennium Park is the larger Grant Park, the site of many festivals and events throughout the summer, most notably Lollapalooza.

I love looking out at the Chicago skyline, and the views from the observation deck of the Willis Tower are quite nice. Those without a fear of heights can also step out into a clear box and look down at the street below.
