With November is full bloom we’d like to kick off the top of the month with fall activities you can do with your loved ones. Since we have officially started the best time of the year, it is important to have a list of city adventures to turn your holiday spirit into high gear. Below are 4 places in the Chicagoland area that we highly suggest everyone should check out.

  1. Lightscape at the Botanical Garden The Botanical Garden describes the Lightscape as a “wander into a festive world of wonder and light. Along a mile-long path, the night comes alive with color, imagination, and sound, from a playful choir of singing trees to a spectacular waterfall of light. At times, you’ll find yourself in the center of it all—stepping inside a cathedral of golden light, walking down an avenue of luminous linden trees, moving through colorful ribbons of light.” For those looking to having a romantic night out with their spouse or nice out in the town with their family and friends this is the perfect way to welcome in Thanksgiving. Grab a cup of joe or yummy hot cider and take a stroll alongside the beautiful botanical gardens. If you are thinking of attending, we highly suggest you purchase your tickets sooner rather than later because the tickets sell out fast!
  2. Magnificent Mile Lights Festival on Michigan Ave You can commence the holiday season without attending the annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival in the heart of Downtown Chicago. Go on and spend some time with all your childhood favorites such as the iconic Mickey Mouse, Donald Ducks, and many other Disney legends. The lights festival is a great way to have a memorable Saturday evening with your loved ones.
  3. Spinning J. Bakery and Soda Fountain Located in the heart of Humboldt Park, Spinning J is a quit and small retro cafe and bakery with a variety of teas, coffee, and delicious homemade sweets. From savory pies such as the famous chicken pot pie and a selection of sweet pies to creative cake flavors such as matcha-almond Spinning, J keeps their customers on their toes with an assortment of different sweets every season. If you’re looking for a cozy dining experience that satisfies all members of your family, this is the place to go.
  4. Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again at the Art Institute For all the art lovers out there, Andy Warhol’s exhibit is a must-see. As one of the most well-known contemporary artists, you have likely come across his artwork at a restaurant or someone’s home. If you’re looking for an in-depth presentation of his work and the history behind it, this exhibit is for you. Located in downtown it is a great fall activity to get out and enjoy Chicago’s scenic downtown and the love for arts and the culture the city has.
