Chicago’s most popular attractions may be closed for the time being, but many currently offer free online content that makes it easy to virtually enjoy Chicago attractions from home. From Facebook live streams to YouTube playlists, you can tour Chicago from your Mondial River West apartment.
Reach for the Stars With Adler Planetarium’s Online Exhibits
Thanks to Google Arts & Culture, a variation of Google Earth showcases various museums online. From exclusive online exhibits and photographs to a virtual walk through parts of the Adler Planetarium, the platform makes it possible to explore planets, stars, and space travel from your apartment.
Listen to CSO in Concert
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra compiled a YouTube playlist for fans to enjoy over 30 pieces from past concerts. Although there’s nothing like live music, online streaming means you can listen to a variety of local musicians from the comforts of your home. From Chopin to Mahler, music lovers can continue to listen to the city’s top musicians until the concert hall reopens.
Bring Home the Brookfield Zoo
Shedd Aquarium’s penguins have quickly gained international Twitter fame after taking a walk around the aquarium. If you’re missing the rest of Chicago’s animals, Brookfield Zoo’s “Bring the Zoo to You” program lets you learn about a different animal every day. Join the zoo’s Facebook Live each morning at 11 AM to watch your favorite animals while enjoying a short presentation.
