Springtime In ChicagoAnytime you visit Chicago is sure to be a great time. However, there is nothing quite like springtime. Winter has faded into the background and the Windy City beckons with so many inviting things to do. Baseball is king on both the North Side and South Side. The former is where you'll find Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, and the latter is the turf of the cross-town rival Chicago White Sox, which plays at U.S. Cellular Field. Take an Architecture River Cruise on the Chicago River for an inside look at several landmarks. The one-hour trip is narrated by an experienced guide and you'll learn about buildings designed by such renowned architects as Helmut Jahn and Mies van der Rohe. Walking tours are popular as well. Two groups to check out are the Chicago Architecture Foundation and Chicago Greeter.
As long as you're not afraid of heights, you'll find Willis Tower a real kick in the pants. The Western Hemisphere's tallest building rises over 1,300 feet and from Skydeck Chicago you can enjoy 360-degree panoramic views. On a clear day, you'll be able to see four different states. If you're into comedy, you've got to head on over to the Second City Theater for the Chicago Improv Festival, which takes place March 31 through April 6. Spoiler alert: Former cast members from "Saturday Night Live" will be making an appearance. Mingle with fellow comic book aficionados at Chicago's Comic Con at McCormick Place from April 25 through April 27.
