Chicago Family Bucket List – Summer 2016

It’s been 3 months already since I posted our Chicago Family Bucket List – Spring 2016. We’ve marked many of them checked ✔even though we haven’t completed them all. Now the summer is here and finally school is out – today-, we can focus on our summer bucket list. There are so many things kids want to do as well as I want to do with kids. At the end of the day, I want everyone to have a memorable summer as a family.

I’m sharing our Summer 2016 Family Bucket List. Some of the items are summer specific, some of them are Chicago specific. (F) are free events or activities. You can also find the printable list below.

*I created our list for our children, ages 10 and 8. Therefore, I don’t have many activities for pre-elementary ages. Still, you can enjoy most of these activities and events with younger children as well.
