Planning a wedding or a business event in Chicago can be a fun and exciting experience. Chicago is full of fantastic locations for a special event whether it's for a business function, a wedding or another social event. There are so many options for venues, or event locations, that selecting one may be the most challenging part of planning your Chicago event.
There are a myriad of options available for events and some can even be surprisingly intimate. Some examples include taking a cruise on Lake Michigan, the botanic gardens, lake shore amusement parks, golf courses, the zoo, or a courtyard of a favorite building downtown, on the Gold Coast, or along the lake shore. Start by making a list of all the places you can think of that would make an ideal setting. Then, start making phone calls to see if the location hosts events. Once you have a few top choices, visit the location to get a feel for if it will work for the event you are planning.
