We have comprised a list of the best things to do in Chicago while sticking to your budget by offering top dollar experiences without paying a premium price. There are plenty of free or inexpensive ways to get the most of the Windy City all year long. Aside from the free concerts, festivals and events happening, here's our take on all the free or budget-friendly things to do in town to get the most out of your visit. Head over to Millennium Park, Chicago’s urban playground spanning three blocks of open lakefront complete with a Ferris Wheel, outdoor music pavilion and ice skating rink. Be sure to check yourself out in the reflections at Cloud Gate, the big silver bean, or have a picnic with friends on the great lawn. Look out for free events in the park, movies on the lawn and music festivals while you’re in town. During the summer months, mingle at the Beach on Lake Michigan. Spend the day at the lake soaking up the rays on the beach. You can make new friends, swim and indulge in the urban lifestyle of Chicago all for virtually no cost other than transportation and spending money. One of Chicago’s main attractions along the water, Navy Pier, is another great option on a budget. It is 50 acres filled with pure fun and amusement rides, shops, restaurants and grassy gardens. There's no cost to enter and visitors can enjoy FREE fireworks at night during the summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day. If you are traveling alone and you want to splurge on a Broadway show, it is easy to find cheaper seats for one, than it is a pair. Chances are you will get the lowest price in the house, and you can virtually sit anywhere. Or better yet, check out Second City Comedy Troupe to literally LOL.
