A quick guide to Chicago


It’s no secret to my friends that Chicago is one of my favorite cities in America. It is one of the best destinations if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway. I suggest a Thursday night- Sunday night trip that way you can have three full days in the city. The Windy City has so much to offer! There is beautiful architecture and history, amazing shopping and (in my opinion) the best restaurants you’ll ever eat at. Be sure to plan your trip out ahead and make reservations in advance that way you can squeeze in the most activities in one weekend! You can find a list of hotels here. Below I have complied a list of my favorite attractions and restaurants in Chicago that you do not want to miss. Enjoy!
