2 MIN READ - As office workers continue to come #BackInTheLoop, we know it’s more important than ever to reconnect with colleagues you haven’t seen in years – or never met in person at all. Hit up your old favorite spots, or try something new, but get your office outings on the calendar. 


Shoreline Sightseeing tours 

Get together and reconnect with your co-workers this summer on a Shoreline Tour. Group tour rates are available on Shoreline’s public tours, including their award-winning Architecture River Tours led by their expert and entertaining guides. Group rates are also available on Shoreline’s Skyline Lake Tours, Fireworks Tours, and Special Events. For larger groups, Shoreline offers private tours as well as private charters. You and your colleagues can relax and enjoy a great Chicago experience touring the Chicago River or Lake Michigan. Learn more

 Maggie Daley Park 

Take it outside at Maggie Daley Park. Enjoy activities like miniature golf, wall climbing, scooter and rollerblade rentals, plus 20 acres of green space ideal for lawn game tournaments.

Social darts at Flight Club 

Flight Club is a multi-award-winning venue that offers a social darts experience. This dynamic venue has 14 playing areas, called Oches, two bars, and a restaurant.
