Hello, summer! Stuck for something to do with your little ones? Here are some summer activities in San Diego and Chicago to help your family have the best summer ever.
Five fab ideas for summer 2021
Go to the zoo
The zoo is a great summer activity with your kid or toddler because there are many things you can see and do! Going to the zoo helps your children learn about endangered species. Being with these amazing animals can bring fun to your day and maybe even a new passion for your kid!
Head to Balboa Park Museums or the Chicago History Museum
Going to any museum, whether it’s history, science, or art, is a great summer activity for kids that can bring out hidden passions. Check out the Chicago History Museum to learn about Illinois’ own President Lincoln and ‘Lincoln’s Chicago.’ Balboa Park in San Diego is also a top spot because it has 17 museums as well as unique architecture.
A great way to stay cool this summer is by heading to a waterpark. We have a soft spot for Mystic Waters Family Aquatic Center in Chicago and Aquatica in San Diego – both have fun water slides and cool activities to enjoy.
Hit the water
Going to the beach, lake, or even river can be fun for the whole family. If you are in San Diego head to Coronado. Chicago-based? Head to Lake Michigan! Both of the aforementioned are free, result! Get outside, cool off, and bring some beach games for all of you to enjoy.
Sign up for summer dance classes and camps
Dancing is, in a way, better than actual sports because you have the chance to be creative! You can tell a story through movement, and this is what makes it unique. Sign your child up for some fun dance classes or summer dance camps and you will have fun watching them grow. It is a wonderful summer activity for kids in San Diego and Chicago.
