Most people I know love the summer season and don't want it to end--especially in Chicago--but I am ecstatic that Fall has begun. While I'll agree that Chicago is the best place to be in the summer months, I think autumn is the most beautiful season of them all and has just as much to offer. Sleeping with the windows open as the air gets cooler at night, football season, my traditional Sunday night dinners and the leaves changing colors are some of my favorite things to look forward to. Oversized sweaters, a new season of boots and don't even get me started on the seasonal food! I can already taste my first bite of butternut squash soup.Here is a top ten guide of things to do in Chicago in the fall from City Search, as well as a my favorite place to search for fall recipes.
