5 Things To Do That Are Really, Really Far Away From NATO

nato activities main
Anyone living in Chicago knows that NATO is coming to town (even though the traffic feels like its already here), and all we want to do is have nothing to do with it. Unless you're protesting, in which case you have little use for this post. If you're hoping to avoid the nightmare that will be getting around Chicago during NATO, you could stay indoors and avoid it altogether. However, its going to be in the '80s this weekend and we highly recommend that you step outside. If you're looking for fun weekend plans as far from the NATO action as possible, read below. We've handpicked a few winners that will get you out of town, and into something totally fun.
