Chicago's List of Things to Do with Kids

Chicago is a kid’s (and parent’s) paradise

We think there’s something really special about discovering Chicago via kid-friendly activities. Not only do you get to visit places that adults would enjoy on their own, sometimes you get to participate in the amazing children’s programming that, if we’re being honest, is really fun for all ages. Best-loved attractions like the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum and the Chicago River Walk are just a few places that feature kid-friendly activities in addition to their regular offerings. Experiences geared explicitly toward kids, like Build-a-Bear, Bike Tours and the Chicago Children’s Theatre, are also plentiful. With so much for kids and parents to do together, you’re in for an unforgettable visit. Explore the list below for some of our favorite things to do with kids.

Be sure to check out our favorite toddler- and teen-friendly activities. We like to think some of them can capture the imaginations of school-age kids as well.
