NOVEMBER: Take a stroller tour of the Art Institute. Regardless of the weather, you can get your stroll on. And lucky baby, those once-amonth guided stroller tours are absolutely free with entrance. (You’ll be pointing out Seurat’s ‘A Sunday On La Grande Jatte’ to tourists in no time.) DECEMBER: Like the song says, the lights are much brighter downtown! Stroll State Street for some serious displays and cut over to Millennium Park to see holiday magnificence. Don’t let the proportions throw you; that tree is gigantic even to the fully grown among us.

MARCH: Check out that famous dyed green river and wear something emblazoned with shamrocks—regardless of nationality. APRIL: A show at Emerald City’s baby-focused Little Theatre is the start of a beautiful friendship, Chicago stage-wise. (Not only is audience participation from the babbling, crawling set expected, it’s encouraged!) MAY: Dine on dim sum in Chinatown. If you’ve been given the all-clear, allergy-wise, dim sum is a fantastic way to explore new tastes, textures and finger foods. (Pork bao and sesame balls, anyone?) Welcome to Chicago, kid; we’re pretty sure you’re going to like it here.

JANUARY: Snuggle up at one of the many Chicago Public Libraries for story time. It’s free, it’s full of potential new pals, and it’s the perfect opportunity for your mom to pick up that book club novel (that she might not get to anytime soon). FEBRUARY: Warm up at the Garfield Park Conservatory. It may be frigid outside, but in these blissfully fragrant rooms? 80-degree Orchid City. ChicagoParent.com
