Rainy Days in Chicago

For some reason, it’s the end of May and this month has been full of showers continuing from April. Again, it is Chicago so the weather is always out of order! I personally, hate waiting around for the weather to get better, especially when forecasts show rain for 5 days straight. There is still so much to do in the Chicago even when it’s rainy and here are some of my favorite things to do:

Spend the day at a museum
There are many museums in Chicago and nearly all of them are indoors. In addition, Chicago residents typically get discounts or free admission to museums…more reason to go! I personally love the Art Institute because it’s a short walk from the Loop campus, often has new exhibits, and is always free for DePaul students. 

Watch a movie
Whether it’s at your place, your friends, or a movie theatre, movie marathons are the best way to spend a rainy day. 

Shopping
Although I’m not crazy about shopping, if I have nothing else to do…it’s always a good rainy day activity. There are so many places to shop whether it’s spending the day at a thrift shop or shopping in Block 37, or the Mag Mile.

See a Show
There is a large theatre scene in Chicago where we have so many theatres and there is always a show going on. Some places to check out are the Cadillac Palace Theatre, CIBC Theatre, Chicago Theatre. As students, we get discounted tickets at a lot of these venues.
