Things To Do this 4th of July

Summertime Chicago has finally arrived, and no city does the 4th of July like us! Jumping on a cruise, attending a classic BBQ, watching live music or dining with firework views are just a few wonderful options for family and friends to enjoy on The Mag Mile during this summer holiday.
