Chicago might be known as the Windy City, but it certainly could be called the Splashtastic city with all the Water Park fun that families can have!
Make a SPLASH with the lazy rivers, slippery slides and wave machines that are all waiting for you, in parks such as Skokie Water Playground with their own spray ground, and the tropical paradise of Rainbow Falls Waterpark, with a dedicated tot pool.
Think water fun is just for summer? Think again! Attractions such as Key Lime Resort offer YEAR ROUND water fun for the whole family – indoors – so rain, hail or shine, it can feel like summer!
Feeling brave? Then try out the 72-foot waterslide at Pavilion Aquatic Center, with huts and palm trees too! They also have an indoor pool as well as outdoor fun, so you get the best of both worlds!
Waterparks are also a great way for kids to learn a new skill, and with most waterparks offering lessons, there is no better time to get started!
So if you are looking for COOL things to do in Chicago, grab those swimmers and dive in!
