Fall is a beautiful time of year in Chicago! The temperatures are just right (in the mid-60's, that's just right for this time of year) and there is still plenty of fun things to do in Chicago every weekend! Don't miss any chance to see the fall foliage in Chicago from one of the sightseeing cruises, or just exploring the city on your own!
