Fall season is here! It’s my favorite time of the year. I know many of you are ready to enjoy the Fall too! While we’ll miss the summer season – dinner on the patio, swimming in the lake, nighttime bike rides, and outdoor movies – we’re ready for the next season.
Chicago is the perfect city to experience the Fall. There’s a chill in the air as the leaves start to change color. Shop windows display cozy sweaters, menus begin to feature autumnal comfort foods and sports bars are buzzing with football. And if you want to leave the city, there are plenty of nearby attractions to explore like pumpkin patches, hayrides, apple picking, and more. Below are a handful of family-friendly local attractions and fall activities perfect for the fall season and within an hour from the Wicker Park Inn.
