What Summer Looks Like in Chicago: 2018 Edition

About a decade ago we ran a series of articles showing the rooftop pools of various buildings around downtown Chicago.  It was a great taste of urban life during the lazy days of the year.

Now that the first full week of summer is here, we present a selection of photos from around the city showing updated views of the parks, roofs, balconies, pools, and other places where Chicagoans spend their free time in the sunshine.

Be sure to share this article with your outlander friends to make them jealous.

Thanks to Joe Zekas at YoChicago!, who spun up Air Joe One to take these pictures.
