People looking to have a great time find themselves with a lot of interesting things to do in Chicago. For couples, Chicago is one of the best places in the United States where they can break away from the routine, unwind and have the quality time they have been wanting to have.

Chicago is home to numerous diverse communities, which are great fun to explore with someone special. Each one has a unique and rich culture they can call their own. The first thing you should do to get to know all of Chicago is to join the Chicago Neighborhood Tours. It is a guided walking tour, and is a very enjoyable to do as a pair when the weather is favorable.

Another great way to get to know Chicagoland is to have a taste of their food. If you are going to Chicago in the summer, one of the things you can do is check out the Taste of Chicago event in Grant Park. The event is an annual gathering of over sixty Chicago restaurateurs serving both residents and visitors nothing but the best Chicago specialties, ethnic and exotic cuisines, and the regular family-friendly dishes. Mark your calendars, June 27th until July 6th this year, for the biggest food festival in the Midwest!

Or you both can get neatly-dressed for a nice romantic dinner at either the Signature Room at the 95th located in the John Hancock Observatory or Seasons at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago.
