As we all start to do our early season cleaning and get ready for the much-anticipated warmer months, a visit to your local dental care specialist should make your to-do list.

Water Tower Dental Care is conveniently located in downtown Chicago, and we're surrounded by plenty of great places and activities that can help you enjoy the Spring. Don't waste the great weather by staying home! Come early for your appointment, or make time for some fun afterwards by visiting some of these great Downtown Chicago locations:

  1. The Lookingglass Theater. Enjoy incredible performances and shows by talented singers, actors, and dancers. Founded in 1988, the Lookingglass Theater has been providing entertainment for decades. Catch one of their upcoming shows after an appointment.
  2. Chicago Water Tower. The heart of the city stands with this water tower, a historical landmark over a century old. Explore the beautiful architecture or check out one of their art gallery exhibits. You may even recognize the area from the finale of The Amazing Race 6.
  3. Water Tower Place Shopping Mall. Dive into shopping, dining, and more inside of the massive shopping center. Visit the American Girl Store or the Art of Dr. Seuss gallery currently on display if you're a family with kids.
  4. Sister's Salon. Get exfoliated and relaxed after caring for your teeth, or help ease those nerves that dentist appointments sometimes bring on. An excellent way to practice self-care while enjoying the Spring weather.
  5. Seneca Playlot Park. Another great option for families with kids, this outdoor playground area is huge with lots of equipment and space to run free in the sunshine. There is even an area for smaller children to enjoy themselves.
  6. Millennium Park. One of the most iconic spots in Chicago, and less than 10 minutes away from Water Tower Dental Care. Enjoy the outdoor town square with amazing sights, wildlife, and plenty of events during the spring and summer months.
  7. Wrigley Field. Are you a Cubs fan? Do you enjoy watching sports? Wrigley Field is home to the new World Series Champions Chicago Cubs and hosts one of the best baseball experiences. Catch one with your family the next time you come by.
  8. Lincoln Park Zoo. See exotic animals and watch a few amazing shows at the best zoo the city has to offer, and it's only 5 minutes away, too. This zoo is open all year, but you'll get the most out of visiting in the spring, summer, and early fall.
  9. The Lakefront Trail. Get active and see the best sights of Chicago. Follow the Lakefront Trail by foot or bike through a total of 18 miles worth of seaside beauty and attractions. You'll pass fun places like the Lincoln Park Zoo as well as several grassy parks to rest at.
  10. North Avenue Beach. As the sun grows warmer against our backs, the water calls to Chicago natives to pack a bag and visit the beach. Less than 10 minutes away from our office is one of the most famous beaches in the Midwest, complete with free WiFi and dining choices.

Now that you've gotten a hint at how fun this side of Chicago can get during the Spring, come by for an exam before hitting Downtown and exploring the great things available to you in our lovely city. We at Water Tower Dental Care are eager to hear from you – contact us for an appointment today.
