Summer’s the time to get going

Chicago Parent Going Places lets your family in on the action

From the silly to the serious, we’ve got you covered in our Summer 2006 issue of Chicago Parent Going Places, the ultimate guide to family fun.

We’ve got baseball, bugs, bathing suits, boats and bird watching. We can tell you the places to swim and the best kid-friendly paths for biking and hiking.

We’ve got the goods on the many things families can enjoy together.

There are nine sections of listings in the 168-page magazine, including more than 83 museums, 71 beach listings (and a warning about E. coli contamination) and 22 nature centers. There are six state parks and 44 campgrounds, a listing of the Midwest’s state fairs, the metro area’s six county fairs and the numerous neighborhood festivals in Chicago and the suburbs.

There are places to play sports and places to watch them and a page full of ways to enjoy summer at night.

But this book is more than just a bunch of listings. It gives you a piece of our minds. We wrap in our years of experience and give you advice on the best way to tackle Taste of Chicago, Hurricane Harbor at Great America and blockbuster exhibits such as the Komodo dragon at the Shedd Aquarium.

So get going and pick up a copy of Chicago Parent Going Places to plan your summer. Or check it out online at
