THE QUESTION: What is one of your favorite summertime activities in the city?

“Bike riding around Northerly Island. You’re in the heart of the city, but you feel so removed from it all. It’s also a great place to catch some sun or a concert.”

“To me, nothing beats walking around Museum Campus and Soldier Field with our dogs. It’s so relaxing not doing anything and just taking in the cityscape from down there.”
