5.  Big Joe’sturtle crossing sign at Big Joe's in Chicago

Two words: turtle racing. That’s what you’ll find at Big Joe’s, along with dive bar classics like pool, darts, and plenty of drinks. Bar-goers can enter a raffle for the chance to win prizes based on each turtle’s speed. Winner gets a t-shirt. Loser gets a free drink. But if you ask us, there are no losers when racing turtles are involved.

If the turtles have your group a little too rowdy, don’t worry about how you’ll get back home—your minibus will be ready to transport you safely after the turtles have gone to bed and the night’s wrapped up.
