Couples Activities to Do in Chicago

Romantic beach

Romantic beach walks, delicious street food, sweaty jazz joints – what more can you ask for? With so many opportunities for a fun-filled romantic night, Chicago is steaming hot even in wintertime!

Whatever the season and no matter the occasion, there’s plenty of love here to share with your soulmate, especially if both of you are into exciting dates, juicy bites, and some good old urban adventures.

Romantic Beach Walks by the Lake

Lake Michigan is one of the most beautiful shorelines in the U.S. and therefore the perfect spot to take your sweetheart on a waterfront date. Share a kiss on one of Chicago’s gorgeous lakeside beaches or spend a day walking from the Oak Street Beach to North Avenue Beach. Chicago’s Riverwalk is yet another brilliant spot by the water, soaked in this city’s contemporary architecture and electrifying restaurant scene.

Exquisite Dinner Dates in Chicago

Speaking of restaurants, you haven’t experienced a date night in Chicago if you haven’t been on a Chicago date that involves the city’s eclectic cuisine. Lovers must eat too, so why not eat in style?

Le Bouchon in Bucktown brings a hint of French amour, but if you want something more quintessential in this vibrant city, book a table for two at Vincent, Avec, or Scofflaw. Steaks at Boeufhaus are perfect too!

A Luxurious Getaway for Two

Tired of all the city buzz?

As exciting as it may be, the urban jungle can sometimes be too much for lovebirds looking to spend an intimate weekend away from prying eyes. Try the Champagne Lodge & Luxury Suites! Located less than 20 miles from downtown Chicago, this extravagant boutique hotel will allow you to relax, unwind, and enjoy some peace and quiet in a once-in-a-lifetime getaway.

Maggie Daley Park

A walk through Maggie Daley Park is like a walk into a whole different world, where stunning architecture and innovative playgrounds provide lovebirds with a fun-filled, joyous date potential.

In the winter, feel free to rent a pair of ice skates and skate the infamous skating ribbon or in the summer grab your gym shoes and tackle the climbing wall. Maggie Daley Park is the perfect destination for an action-packed date in Chicago.

Chicago’s Secret Bars

For some, Chicago’s secret bars are nothing more than an urban legend. For others with an in-depth knowledge of the city’s bar scene, they are the epitome of the perfect date. Hidden in plain sight and dimly lit, these swank spots are made for casual dates, a secluded smooch, and endless conversation. To find your favorite, you’ll have to do some bar crawling of your own.

Biking the Lakefront Trail

Bars not your scene? No problem! How about heading out on a leisurely bike ride down the Chicago’s Lakefront Trail? It’s a fairy-tale spot that winds along Lake Michigan’s coast. If you and your significant other are looking for an outdoor date idea in Chicago, this is it!

Chicago is filled with exciting couples activities. It’s truly one of the best cities in America for couples. And if that weekend away sounded enticing to you, reach out to Champagne Lodge today!
