A wide variety of open air concerts in Grant Park, on the city's lakefront, and elsewhere provide varied entertainment for music lovers. There are many other professional musical and dance companies. Theater offerings are plentiful.

Visits to the Museum of Science and Industry, the Art Institute, the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Brookfield Zoo provide great opportunities for enjoyment by Chicagoans and visitors alike.
