Best Time to Visit
With frigid winters and humid summers, fall and spring are the best time to visit Chicago. These seasons give way to warm temperatures that are perfect for a dip in the lake.
What to Pack
Given its proximity to Lake Michigan, the weather in Chicago can be unpredictable! Make sure to pack lots of layers during the cooler months (including hats and gloves). In the summer, keep the mosquitos at bay with a bottle of bug spray and lightweight layers.
