Chicago has been voted the 2nd most fun city in the world!
Earlier this month, we revealed that Chicago was voted the second most beautiful city in the world by the 27,000 readers that responded to the annual Time Out Index survey. But our fair city also earned another top honor: the second most fun city in the world. Only Tel Aviv, Israel was ranked higher, with voters commending its ample nightlife, a variety of outdoor activities and one of the region's largest Pride celebrations.
So what makes Chicago more fun?
What makes Chicago so much fun? Well, there's a long list of reasons, and it likely starts with the sheer number of amazing things to do in Chicago, from taking in exhibitions at a Chicago museum to seeing the city spread out below you from atop the Willis Tower Skydeck. No matter what side of the city you find yourself on, there's a beautiful Chicago park where you can relax, Chicago beaches where you can hang out by the lake (when it's warm enough) and a local music venues where you can watch a concert. In the spring, summer and fall, you'll find festivals and events taking over streets throughout the city—heck, there are even winter festivals like Christkindlmarket and the Empty Bottle's annual Music Frozen Dancing block party.
But I know you already knew that ;)
