Taking a summer vacation doesn’t mean you have to travel halfway around the world to enjoy some time away. There are so many amazing opportunities to explore and discover right here in Chicago. From touring historical sites to shopping to visiting nearby attractions, Chicago has something for everyone. Paragon Car & Van Rental recommends exploring these sites for a fun time with family and friends.
1. Touring Chicago with Family
If you’re planning a trip to Chicago to visit family and would like to tour the city together in comfort and style, consider renting one of our minivans. Spend some time at the Chicago Riverwalk and take a boat cruise. Visit The Field Museum where you and the kids can discover different dinosaurs and fossils, or learn more about ancient Egypt. You definitely need to plan an afternoon at the Lincoln Park Zoo where the kids will excitedly run from exhibit to exhibit, seeing hundreds of exotic animals and vibrant flower gardens.
2. Shopping with Friends
Are you and a group of friends planning a shopping weekend in Chicago? Rent one of our minivans! Not only can it hold all your shopping bags, but it can comfortably fit up to seven people. Be sure to stop at The Shops at North Bridge where you can browse through trendy clothes at Nordstrom, peruse through the body and face products at L’Occitane en Provence, or treat yourself to some luxurious jewelry at AP Monaco. There are also the Roosevelt Collection Shops with name brand stores like H & M, LOFT, and The Container Store.
3. Traveling Out of Town
If you’re traveling out of town for a one-day road trip or a short weekend away, consider renting one of our spacious minivans. You can venture southeast of Chicago to Shipshewana Auction & Flea Market in Indiana. Make a day or weekend of it with food courts, antique auctions, personalized arts and crafts, homemade health and beauty products, and much more. Or, travel up north to the Wisconsin Dells where you and the family can experience amusement parks, museums, interactive exhibits, wildlife parks, exotic cat rescues, water parks, and more.
