During these unprecedented times, things can change from one day to the next. No worries here, there are still plenty of activities to do around the city that can be a great Fall fix. We have created an updated list of different places that are still open and will continue giving guests a fun-filled spooky season.
Haunted Chicago Tours
Free Tours By Foot offers a variety of “Ghost Tour” options for those looking for a scary adventure. The on foot Chicago Ghost Tour will stop at places such as The Congress Hotel and Chicago’s Old Red Light District. The tour will also include creepy stories such as the murderous tales of H.H. Holmes & John Wayne Gayce and the S.S. Eastland Disaster Hauntings. In addition, it is a free tour and will last approximately two hours.

On a sweeter note, apple picking at the All Seasons Apple Orchard in Woodstock is a great place to visit during the fall. Located in Northern Illinois, this place offers visitors with over 15,000 apple trees and two apple orchards. They offer so many different apple choices that include the Jonagold, the Red Delicious, the Fuji, and many more. If you’re not in the mood to pick your own apples, you can purchase apples in the Farmers Market. Nothing says fall time like a warm apple pie!
