Chicago Spring 2020 Activities

For us, the burgeoning springtime in Chicago always brings to mind George Harrison’s lovely Beatles composition, “Here Comes the Sun.” Though this year’s winter has not felt as long, cold or lonely as most (knock on wood), it’s still beautiful to feel the spring sunshine returning from its long frigid slumber.

Oftentimes, however, it can feel like spring is skipped entirely in Chicago and we suddenly find ourselves in the hot, humid summer. So how can we get out and appreciate those brief doses of springtime that our rather stingy Illinois climate provides?

To help make the most of your spring 2020 experience, we’ve compiled several activities below sure to stimulate your senses with the many different elements this special season has to offer. Read on and decide how you’d like to enjoy your time in spring 2020.
