The leaves are changing, the knit sweaters are being pulled out of storage and pumpkin spice season is in full swing. Fall is officially here in Chicago and The St. Regis Chicago is perfectly situated in Lakeshore East, which means the fall festivities in Chicago are endless. If you’re looking for a great outing to don your latest sweater weather attire, here are a few fabulous Chicago outings to try this fall.


Nothing says fall in Chicago like cheering on the Chicago Bears. Sunday football is a Chicago staple no matter what the rankings say. Soldier Field still has a few home games this season to feel the electric energy Justin Fields has begun to call home. If you are looking to avoid bundling up, there are some great options to catch the game nearby. Only a 15-minute walk from The St. Regis Chicago, Radio Room is a nice choice to meet friends for some bites and brews.


For the more artistic Chicagoan, the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit, only 2 miles away from The St. Regis Chicago, offers yoga between Van Gogh’s famous brushstrokes every weekend for a limited time. Led by CorePower Yoga instructors, these classes take place within the multi-sensory and all-encompassing Immersive Van Gogh experience. The Chicago Art Institute also is a classic outing that can transcend you to Paris with its limited time and must-see exhibit, André Kertész: Postcards from Paris.


Also, the options for celebrating Thanksgiving in Chicago are endless. Whether you are parking out on State Street to watch the Thanksgiving Parade or running through the Turkey Trot finish line, Chicago has more to offer than just stuffing and gravy. Of course, this holiday wouldn’t be complete without ordering a gourmet pie from Goddess and the Baker on the riverfront.


Since you’ll likely want to get a head start on holiday shopping this year, we encourage everyone to get out and shop local this year at the Merchandise Mart’s annual One of a Kind show in early December. Full of vendors with unique and hand-crafted gifts, One of a Kind will help you check every person off your gift list.


Be sure to take in the beautiful autumn colors outside and celebrate fall by taking advantage of Chicago’s fall festivities and the amazing autumn adventures just steps away from The St. Regis Chicago. To learn more, please visit The Residences at The St. Regis Chicago here.
