Let me preface this Chicago City Guide by saying that we. loved. chicago. I knew I’d like it, but did not realize how much. We basically ate our way through the city, as one does. We fell in love with the many different neighborhoods, the restaurants and bars, and well – everything else.
If you’ve been to Chicago, perhaps you know what I mean. It’s a fantastic city with almost too much to see in one weekend! But, we did it. We saw almost everything we wanted to, which I call a success.
We had so many favorite spots that we somehow managed to hit up in the short time we were there. We walked a ton, ate donuts like there was no tomorrow, and indulged almost too much. Okay, actually too much. Hey -it’s vacation, there’s no judgment on vacation. Also calories don’t count. Or carbs.
We, admittedly, didn’t do any shopping while in Chicago. It was all about the food, man! So, this Chicago City Guide unfortunately doesn’t include a where to shop section – but if you have any favorites, please share! We already want to visit again, and next time we’ll be sure to shop 😉
I can’t end my Chicago City Guide without seriously thanking everyone who gave us recommendations. Cynthia – Aviary and Summer House Santa Monica were spot on, and the burger at Au Cheval was bomb. Danielle – Maude’s was a dream! So happy you suggested it! I know I’m neglecting to mention so many of you, but thank you all so much for your suggestions! We wish we could have gone everywhere. Well, yet another excuse to head back.
