Whether family drives up from out of state or drops in from the skies over O'Hare, their visits always fire up holiday fun. If you're expecting a full house this Fourth of July, expand your entertaining options with nearby storage units. From Addison, IL backyards to the shores of Lake Michigan, it's time for star-spangled celebrations.

Clear A Space

Get a jump on playing host with a little advanced planning. Keep everyone comfortable by giving them space with these self storage tricks.

  • Make room for guest suitcases by sending your luggage to a storage unit for the holiday.
  • Before you store those bags, free up closet space by packing them with jackets and coats.
  • Turn trips to the storage facility into opportunities to declutter guest rooms.
  • Clear the backyard for a Fourth of July cookout by moving lawn equipment to self storage.

Greet incoming family with plenty of room to stash their stuff, and then surprise your expected guests with the unexpected. Treat them to Chicagoland's favorite Fourth of July traditions.

Play at the Ballpark and the Pier

Show them how we play baseball here in Chicago with a game at Wrigley Field. This July 4th, the Cubs take on Tampa Bay for an afternoon as American as apple pie. The game should finish in time for the big Fourth of July blowout at Navy Pier. Light up the night for your out-of-towners with fantastic fireworks over Lake Michigan. It's one of the nation's biggest light shows, and it's all set to hot music by the city's coolest DJs.

Relax Back at the House

If you decide to celebrate at home, start with a walk back into our historic past. Visit the Addison Historical Museum and imagine village life in the 1800s. Take an afternoon stroll through the shade of Cricket Creek Forest Preserve while you work up an appetite for backyard cooking. Prepare your own Ribfest for a farewell feast, and don't be surprised when guests promise to come back next year for savory seconds.
