Chicago is the third most populated (approximately 2.7 million
residents) city of the United States, located in the State of Illinois.
Chicagoland, as it is often called, is the third-largest
metropolitan area in the USA (about 9.8 million people), right after
NYC and Los Angeles. The city is a thriving cultural center known for
its outdoor public art works by Picasso, Chagall, Miro, and
Abakanowicz. A beautiful location on the picturesque waterfront,
friendly people from different regions around the world, and numerous
cultural events, make Chicago indeed a great city for a date. Here are
some, in our opinion, interesting ideas for dating in Chicago.
City in a Garden
Not without a reason, during the establishment of a city in 1837,
Chicago has adopted its motto Latin phrase "Urbs in Horto"
which translates to "City in a Garden". Nowadays Chicago boasts
of 552 parks located in the area of more than 7,300 acres (3,000 ha)
which includes inter alia, 33 sandy beaches, numerous museums, two
world-class conservatories, and 16 historic lagoons. The one of the
largest and most famous parks is surely Lincoln Park. It is a
popular destination for a walk or a date. The park has a richness of
attractions located here, including the
Lincoln Park Zoo,
Lincoln Park Conservatory,
The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
and Chicago History Museum.
Particularly noteworthy is the "hidden gem" of the place that is
Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. During the walk
you can feel like when walking through an open woodland. All nature
lovers will be delighted by the richness of native plants, such as
hackberry, oak, hawthorn, and wildflowers thrive. It's also a great
place to watch birds. The presence of many bars and clubs (especially
along Lincoln Avenue), numerous restaurants, coffee shops,
upscale boutiques and national retailers makes
Lincoln Park one of the best places for dating in Chicago.
The Botanic Garden, located about 25 miles away from the city, might
be the perfect place for a date, regardless of the season. During the
spring and summer, thousands of beautifully blooming flower species
spread an amazing smell. Autumn scenic park is all in yellow and
red. In the winter it turns into a romantic and charming ice
garden. Botanical Garden is the perfect place to relax for a while
with your sweetheart from the surrounding hustle and bustle of a big
city. Rose lovers will be for sure interested in Rose Garden,
housed here with its impressive collection of about 500 bushes,
representing 100 species. Another attraction is the Elizabeth
Hubert Malott Japanese Garden beautifully situated on three
islands. We particularly recommend a walk in a Japanese garden during
a winter, when snow covers everything. This is an unusual and
beautiful view. The garden is also a great place to spread a blanket
on the grass and arrange a picnic only for the two of you. If you do
not want to prepare lunch by yourself you can go to the
Garden Cafe, located nearby.
Culture of Chicago
Chicago is a very important point on the cultural map of the world.
The city has made a huge contribution to music. It is famous for jazz,
soul, blues, and gospel. It is also the birthplace of House music.
Therefore, the richness of clubs playing these genres of music
shouldn't be a surprise for anybody. Jazz lovers should definitely go
to Andy's Jazz Club or Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. These are ones
of the most famous and respected clubs playing this kind of music,
renowned for its warm atmosphere and high quality performances. The
first one is also known for its delicious cuisines. Those of you who
like the blues can not miss Buddy Guy's Legends. It's a great, atmospheric
venue where not only you can listen to a high quality music, but also taste
a variety of delicious food. Soul lovers should visit the
Bottle club which offers a soul nights. Their tagline,
"Music Friendly Dancing" perfectly captures the atmosphere.
Also, the aforementioned Green Mill Cocktail Lounge has soul
evenings in its offer.
Chicago is well known not only for music. It is a major center for
and Steppenwolf Theatre Company
at the forefront. These are famous for fine actors, directors and
spectacular performances. If you like to laugh you will appreciate

Tim Meadows, Mike Myers, Tina Fey, Dratch, just to name a few.

is the landmark of Chicago and one of the most beautiful buildings in
the world at the same time. With its 3.563 seats, it is the
second-largest opera auditorium in North America. On its stage
