Spring Break Go Guide: March 23 – 29

It’s the dreaded word: staycation.

Sure, we all dream of sunny beaches and 4-star hotels, but not everyone can make it out of town.

And let’s face it—Chicago’s pretty exciting. Maybe this is the year your friends and family have targeted you for a visit.

So, whether it’s the kids who are home from school this week or the in-laws making a visit, we’ve got plenty of ideas to keep busy and have fun.
