Last year, fellow Chicago Parent writer Jennifer DuBose asked
parents to consider making a family "bucket
list", i.e. a list of all the things you want to do with
your kids before they fly the coop.
I recently proofread a Chicago travel guidebook: this freelance
task entailed checking up on every Chicago restaurant, cafe,
museum, shoe store, ice cream parlour - yes, just about *every*
noteworthy place in our city. I thought I already knew our city
inside out, but let me tell you, after this task, I *really* know
our city inside out.
But as I filed through the sights and scenery, making notes and
corrections, I realized that there are still so many things that I
have yet to experience! And there are so many gems that I have yet
to introduce to my children. So as I worked on the project, I kept
a running list of everything I still wanted to experience with my
family, in this windy city.
Here are a few of the items on my Chicago family bucket
