Traveling is expensive. Airline tickets, hotel rooms and nice meals really put a dent in the budget. Check out some fun FREE things you can do next time you visit the Windy City.
Comedy – Chicago is not only called the “Second City” but is also the home of The Second City, a comedy troupe that was once home to such great actors as John Belushi and Mike Meyers and Tina Fey. Many know about this sketch comedy group but what most don’t know is they offer free improv sketches after the show every night except Friday.
Music – If you are traveling to our great city between May and October you are bound to find a free concert or weekend festival to fit your liking. Many great bands also play at the local watering holes. Enjoy Jazz at Green Mill or drown the blues at Lee’s Unleaded Blues.
Museums – Our great city is home to many great museums including the Natural History Museum, Museum of Science and Industry and Shed’s aquarium. What most guests don’t know is many of our best museum offer free admission during specific days or times of year. If you have a friend in Chicago they often get free passes from the public libraries as well.
