To Do List for Fall 2014

Fall in Chicago is so bittersweet sometimes.  It is pretty with all of the leave changing and still so many activities going on within the city, but we all know winter is coming.  Which means everyone in Chicago is getting ready to hibernate for the Winter so they need to get outside as much as possible before the Winter temperatures take over.  Our weekends this fall are pretty free which means we have plenty of time to fit in all of the random fun activities that make us remember why we pay such high rent to live in such a beautiful city. 

My List:

1. Run the Marathon - This one is a little bit of a given, but it definitely counts as enjoying the city and seeing the sights.  The marathon route goes through so many different neighborhoods of Chicago, I am sure there will be neighborhoods I haven't even had a chance to visit yet. 

2. Go to the movies - My list of movies I want to see this fall seems to be growing by the second.  A lot of the books I have read lately have been turned into movies so I would love to be able to check them out on the big screen.  To list a few:  If I Stay, Gone Girl, and Mockingjay - all come out this fall and I can't wait to see them!

3. Visit the Art Institute of Chicago - I have actually never been to this museum and it just got ranked one of the top museums.  So I think it is a definite "must go" as some point this fall. It is very reasonable to get in - especially for Chicago residents ($18/person) and is a little bit of a walk from out apartment, but on a cool Chicago day it's definitely possible.

4. Rent a Divvy Bike - Preferably just along the lake front.  It makes me so nervous to bike down in the loop where the taxi's are crazy.  I want to test it out though - they seem to be getting more and more popular.

5. Go to an apple orchard - and maybe.. possibly.. even attempt.. to make a pie with all the apples! How fun does that sound - I really do need to improve my baking skills...
