Living in one of the most brutal winter climates of any large metro area in the country, Chicagoans know that summer is the time to get outside! At Shoreline Sightseeing we know that most folks are looking for fun outdoor activities in Chicago and don’t want to spend their days inside at this time of year – especially within the doors of a gym. There are a lot of great ways you can stay fit this summer, though, with a wide variety of Chicago outdoor workouts to choose from. Make this a fun, fit, and energetic summer outside.
Millenium Park Workouts
If you’re the kind of person that gets motivated at the gym by other people working out around you, then you’ll probably enjoy working out with others at one of the many Millennium Park workouts. With 45 minutes classes and sessions from June 7-28, July 5-August 2, and August 9-September 6, you can get in shape while getting some sun from any of the following classes:
- 7:00 a.m. – Tai Chi
- 8:00 a.m.– Yoga
- 9:00 a.m. – Pilates
- 10:00 a.m. – Zumba
Summer Hiking Experiences
Whether you’re in the heart of the city or out in the Chicago suburbs, there are plenty of hiking opportunities for folks in Chicagoland who want to get in shape while enjoying the peace and serenity of nature. Take a friend or dog along or simply enjoy the quietude of having your own time and space while also getting in shape at one of Chicago’s many hiking locales. Here are just a couple:
- Mount Bridgeport – While it’s actually called Henry C. Palmisano Nature Park, most folks know it as Mount Bridgeport. This spot offers 1.7 miles of walkways in the city as well as a quarter-mile running track, a soccer field, concrete walkways, and a 30-foot summit in the heart of the city.
- Northerly Island – For the city dweller who enjoys the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle, Northerly Island is a serene little spot with a beautiful view of the lakefront and the Loop. Just around the corner from McCormick Place and right off the #146 bus line, this relaxing getaway has plenty of paved paths and all the quiet you need to get away from it all for a while.
Take a Break with Shoreline Sightseeing
Take a break from work and working out to enjoy the beautiful sites of Chicago as well. With a Chicago Classic Lake Tour, you’ll enjoy the summer Great Lake winds and a beautiful new look at the city.
