3 Great Ways to Spend Your Laundry-free Time in Chicago


Chicago is an amazing city that’s full of things to do, and that’s why it draws tourists from all over the world every year. If you live in Chicago, you should also be taking advantage of all the entertaining, educational, and cultural opportunities the city offers, but sometimes it can be hard for people who live in the city to get as much out of it as they should. Daily chores and hassles get in the way. 

What if you could eliminate one or more time drains from your schedule? For example, what if you could have your laundry done for you, and also skip driving miles out of your way to pick up your dry cleaning? Take a look at some of the things you could do with your laundry-free time in Chicago.


Take Me Out to the Ballgame at Wrigley Field

Built in 1914, Wrigley Field is one of the oldest ballparks in America, and it’s an amazing attraction to have in your own city. Of course, the main attraction here is baseball, and even if you’re not a superfan, it’s worth making a point to catch a game once in a while just for the experience. Even when it’s not baseball season, there are reasons to visit. 

You can get a tour of the Friendly Confines, for one thing. You can also visit the Park at Wrigley to see what’s going on. The Park is host to a variety of events during the week and there’s something to appeal to everyone. Maybe you want to watch an outdoor movie, catch a concert, or join a running club. All are possibilities worth checking out, and they’re all more fun than folding a stack of laundry. 


Laugh It Up at The Second City

One thing you could do on a night when you aren’t doing laundry is to visit the comedy club The Second City. This is the club that launched the careers of many famous comics like Bill Murray, Tina Fey, and Stephen Colbert.

The club still attracts top talent, so if you want to see the best up-and-coming comedians before they end up on Saturday Night Live, this is the place to do it. If you’re interested in stand-up, sketch comedy, or improv yourself, you’ll be interested to learn that The Second City also offers training classes.


Feed Your Soul at The Chicago Cultural Center

Looking to expand your mind and expose yourself to new cultural experiences? Want to do it without having to spend a lot of money? Then the Chicago Cultural Center is for you. Here you can find art exhibits, classical music concerts, and amazing architecture including the building’s famous stained-glass Tiffany dome. 

The best part is that it’s almost completely free. Most exhibits and events at the Chicago Cultural Center are open to the public and cost nothing in admission fees. It’s a great way to expand your cultural consciousness without putting pressure on your wallet.
