Family-Friendly Fall Activities In Chicago 

September 18, 2022 | Things to Do

While Wicker Park is certainly a hot spot within Chicago, it’s also an extremely family-friendly neighborhood. I’ve raised my family here and there are many families with kids of all ages in area.  There are many advantages of raising kids in the city.  And it should come as no surprise that there is a wealth of seasonal, family-orientated events that pop-up in the community for locals and tourists alike. Below, you’ll find a handful of activities that each member of the family can enjoy this Fall season.
