If you’re looking for a quick weekend escape, consider Chicago, especially during the warmer summer months. The following are some tips for visiting the Windy City:
Where to stay
Some of the top lodging choices in Chicago include the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, and the Waldorf Astoria Chicago.
What to eat
Some of Chicago’s most popular high-end restaurants include Alinea, NoMI Kitchen, Acadia, and Michael Jordan’s Steak House. If you want to indulge on some of Chicago’s food staples, some more laid back choices include Lou Malnati’s for deep fish pizza, Hot Doug’s for hotdogs, and Bari for Italian beef sandwiches.
What to do
When the weather is cooperating, North Avenue Beach on Lake Michigan is a great place for some fun in the sun. The 3,000-foot-long Navy Pier on the Chicago shoreline offers an abundance of entertainment for all ages, including the infamous 150-foot tall Ferris Wheel. Magnificent Mile, or sometimes just referred to as “Mag Mile,” is considered by many to be one of the best shopping districts in the world. If you’re visiting during baseball season, catch a Cubs game at Wrigley Field. And don’t miss the Art Institution of Chicago, which is home to over 300,000 artifacts and pieces of artwork from around the world.
What to see
Cloud Gate, or more commonly known as The Bean, is located in the center of Millennium Park and is a must-see for anyone visiting Chicago for the first time. You can also get a terrific view of the city from one of Chicago’s many observation decks, including 360 Chicago and Willis Tower Skydeck.
