Adventures in Chicago | The Complete Guide
Is adventure your way of life???
I don’t know about you, but adventure is definitely my drug of choice.
I love to travel and do adventures where ever I live. It’s been close to 2 years that I have been living in Chicago and here are the adventures / extreme sports that I found to do in and around Chicago.
I love climbing and so does Chicagoan’s. There are multiple indoor climbing spots in the city.
Paddle Boarding Adventures
Have you ever balanced yourself on a paddle board before?? . I thought it's going to be very hard standing up and to balance myself, but was stable as a Rock, if you have never tried definitely give it a shot 😉 Thanks @napervillekayak 📸 @sidkota . #paddleboarding #paddleboard #paddling #fun #funtimes #naperville #sunday #sundayfunday #weekend #adventure #adventuretime #adventurers #adventurer #happy #lifeofadventure #yolo

One of the best thing about living in Chicago is having access to the Chicago river. And when there is access to the stream of water, there is an option of Kayaking.
There is a reason why Chicago is called a windy city, because it’s damn windy thanks to Lake Michigan.
The lake which looks like the ocean and high blowing winds gives an excellent opportunity for sailing. There are a few schools which teach you to learn sailing, but if you don’t want to learn and just experience sailing, you can get that too.
Wake Boarding/ Wake Surfing
Who else want to get dragged by a rope on the water?? Trust me it's so much fun and very easy to learn..😁🏄🏼♂️ ************* I first tried wakeboarding in Miami with a speed board, but it was very hard to learn in 15 min. So finally I'm at the @westrockwakepark and learned a little bit of wake surfing. But sad that I lost my #gorpro doing this adventure..😫 📸 @sidkota . #wake#wakeboarding #wakeboard #liquidforce #wakesurf #wakeboardinglife #watersports #wakelife #wakepark #wakeskate #liquidforcewake #cablewakeboarding #adventuretime #adventurers #adventurer
Do you want to get dragged by a rope in the water??
Trust me, it’s so much fun and very easy to learn..😁🏄🏼♂️
Skiing / Snowboarding Adventures
The thing about living in the Midwest is you get to experience all 4 seasons. The Winter does give the opportunity to do a lot of winter adventures like Skiing & Snowboarding.
There is nothing like flying in the air like a bird. Lucky for Chicagoians there is Enjoy Field-4LL4
Well, there is nothing that could beat the experience of free falling from 15,000 feet, if you are an adrenaline junkie like me, you would definitely want to do this.
Chicago, being so windy makes it hard to do skydiving, but if you drive a little bit there are few jump zones. Skydive Chicago, Skydive Windy City Chicago, Chicagoland Skydiving Center, Skydive Midwest Skydiving Center (My Dropzone)
There is nothing like real skydiving, but indoor skydiving isn’t that bad. You are living in the city and wanted to have some adrenaline, you can have here at Ifly
Racing/ Exotic Cars Adventures
Do you like to push that pedal and go from 0 – 100km/h in 3.4 sec?? Thanks there is Chicagoland Speedway where Xtreme Experience do events on specific dates where you can try different exotic cars and drive it as you wish.
If you are into hiking, there are quite a number of places where you can go. Starve Rock & Indiana Dunes are the most popular one, but there are many other places you can go..
