How to *still* have an amazing fall in Chicago
Like everything else in 2020, fall in Chicago is going to look a little different this time around. Nonetheless, you can still count on new, socially distanced versions of your favorite autumn pastimes to make every bit of the fleeting season count. How? Allow us to count the ways.
Go leaf-peeping
Heads up: Chicago’s deciduous foliage hits its fiery peak during the second week of October.
Hit the road
You don’t have to skip town to explore one of these scenic drives—all located within city limits.

Head to an orchard to pick apples
Don't forget to grab a pint of cider and some cinnamon-dusted doughnuts on your way out!
