Spring Break in Chicago with kids.

Spring Break in Chicago with Kids.

The buzz around my house lately is that spring break is quickly approaching.

Can you believe it?

We have heard that some schools have done away with spring break this year due to the excess of snow days.

In our town Spring Break is still a go, so if you are starting to think about what you can do we have some great ideas!

Chicago is such a fun city for anyone but it is especially great because families with kids of all ages are bound to enjoy it!

Places to stay in Chicago with Kids

Hotel Lincoln is one of our recommendations, just know that it is a little but expensive. Here is the advantage to paying a little more to stay here: you are super close to the places that the kids want to visit!

If you are needing to be slightly more budget conscious (who isn’t!) then we suggest checking out these hotels: The Crowne

Plaza, Embassy Suites, or the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza.

Now, on to things to do and see while you are in town!

If you have little girls I am sure that you are already very aware that there is an American Girl Place in Chicago, but in case you didn’t this should be on your list! Real Moment: If your daughter is living happily without a doll that costs $115 then you make the call on if you want to do that intro, if you are picking up what I am putting down!

Things to do in Chicago with Kids

The Field Museum, makes our list of places to go when you are in town. This is a museum where you can breathe a bit more easily because your kids are encouraged to get hands on within certain exhibits!

No trip to Chicago is complete without a trip to the Navy Pier, you can find the Chicago Children’s Museum, and the iconic Ferris Wheel to name a few amazing things that you can do there.

The Museum of Science and Industry, is right up any little (or big) boy’s alley if they are in to planes, trains and automobiles (sorry I couldn’t help myself).

Millennium Park, is a great space for you to let your crew burn off some steam and see their reflection in the bean of course!

I would be totally remiss if I left off LegoLand Discovery Center, well my kids would be so mad if I left it off. Legos are great fun for everyone, it is a sure hit with your family, at least it is with mine!

If you would rather stay closer to Legoland Discovery Center in a hotel that your kids will thank you for then check out Key Lime Cove. This is a hotel that features a 65,000 square foot water park. The nice thing is it has age appropriate areas for each member of your family.

We could go on and on about what there is to do in Chicago! Let us know if you decide to go and what you did while you are there. Better yet, tell us what you and your family love to do!

    Great list! We are trying to decide what to do for vacation this year so I’m pursuing your site looking for ideas! We’ve been to Chicago many times, and the Field museum is totally impressive. One of the largest natural history museums in the world, I believe.
