Anonymous asked: Hey, I'm visiting family in Chicago for a month and am finding it really boring staying home all day so I was wondering if you hAd any recommendations for things a 19 year old could do here?
Hey there - sure thing. If you’re into cycling, take advantage of the Divvy bike share program, they are all over the city and I think it’s the best way to get around and see the various sites. The lakeshore path is a great spot to cruise… great views of the beach and city.
Though I’ve never been, I hear Uncommon Ground (north side) is a great coffee shop for all ages live music etc.
Humboldt Park is a nice chill park on the west side with a lake and walking/biking paths. Great spot to do some reading and relaxing.
If you’re looking to meet people hop on Couchsurfing.org and link up with some folks or join one of the events, it’s an active community open to meeting new people all the time.
Hope that helps.
