Kid-friendly things to do in Chicago

Dance to EvOLvE has locations in Chicago, Cleveland and San Diego

Thinking about having a family day out? Luckily you live in one of the best cities in America. There are so many different kids activities to do in Chicago. So sit back, relax and keep for the full low-down on what to do with the kids in Chicago.

 

The Bean

We have to start off with a classic. If you’re looking for things to do with the kids in Chicago and you haven’t visited the Bean, it’s time to rectify that.  The Bean is located in Millennium Park which is in the Loop area. Kids will love to see their reflections on this enormous stainless steel sculpture. It’s one of the best kids activities in Chicago because it is such a unique and fun experience. Another cool thing about the Bean is that its open everyday of the year, come rain or shine. It’s also open all day long, so don’t sweat about going to see the Bean at a certain time of day. The Bean is one of the things that makes Chicago so special. You won’t find a giant bean in the middle of a city anywhere else!

 

The Navy Pier

Another idea for things to do with kids in Chicago is to go to the Navy Pier and watch a movie at the Navy Pier IMAX theatre. This is one of Chicago’s most famous kid-friendly spots. If that doesn’t work for your family, another idea is to take your kids to the Chicago Children’s museum. If you’re interested in stopping by the museum, don’t forget to take advantage of Target Free Night. Every Thursday, from 5-8pm, entry is free.  You can also save some cash by visiting the museum the first Sunday of every month to get free entries for anyone aged 15 and under.

Bobby’s Tike Hike

You can find Bobby’s Tike Hike on the North Side in Streeterville. Your kids will love this because they can explore a hidden garden, pet the Lincoln Park Zoo animals, toss coins into a wishing fountain and rub Abe Lincoln’s foot. If you’re interested in this activity, make sure you reserve your tour online for a 10 per cent discount. And don’t forget to bring your camera to capture all those unforgettable memories.

Washington Library Center

Do your little ones prefer to be inside and read some awesome books? Well, we have the perfect activity idea! Visit the Washington Library Center  which holds the largest collection of children’s books in the city. This awesome children’s library is called the Thomas Hughes Children’s Library and  is located on the second floor.
