Chicago is an amazing city in the fall (its best season). Here's what to do in and around The Windy City this autumn: • Head north (take Sheridan Road for the best view) to the Bahá'í House of Worship and the Chicago Botanic Gardens • Go slightly west to see Pilsen’s street art and murals • Travel south to Hyde Park to see the University of Chicago architecture, Oriental Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House when the campus comes alive • Cheer on the Chicago Marathon runners at North Avenue and Wells Street, while listening to the Elvis Presley impersonator • Attend the North Halsted Street Halloween Parade • Visit the Sculptural Objects and Functional Art exhibit (SOFA) when it is in town • Check-out the Chicago Humanities Festival. It's their 25th anniversary this year
