Chicago Travel Guide

I oddly love these kind of pictures when I travel

We absolutely loved our trip to Chicago! I couldn't wait to get back and share a blog post on this vacation. Chicago is like New York with more space and lots of hidden gems to visit. I'm sharing a few of our favorite parts of this trip below if you ever plan on visiting. Most pictures are unfiltered so you can see Chicago in all its glory!

First off- the River Architecture tour. This tour takes you through the Chicago River via boat and talks about he history of Chicago. It was really interesting, had amazing views, and the boat had a bar (vacation plus). We booked through and our tour guide was awesome.

Second- I'm pretty sure I had the best Truffle Gnocchi in my entire life at Siena Tavern. This is a nice Italian restaurant on West Kinzie St. if you're looking for a nice dinner in a dark, classy environment. That Gnocchi is on my list of about five meals that I will never forget about.

We stayed at the St. Jane hotel and because we booked early, the price wasn't bad for one room split three ways. It's a nice, boutique hotel that was close to some fun bars, restaurants, breakfast spots, the lake, and Millennium park. I would 10/10 stay here again.

Millennium park is obviously a must see, it's beautiful even in the fall and has the famous Bean. The Bean wasn't as impressive as I thought it would be but it's still cool to check that off the bucket list.

One morning we ran from our hotel through Millennium park and onto the trail along the Michigan Lake which was beautiful. The lake and parks in this area are a must see!

Stan's donuts was right by our hotel as was Garrets popcorn. You need a pretzel bagel and Chicago mix popcorn in your life! Trust me!

One day we had lunch on the river at Beatnik on the River and it was one of the cutest restaurants I've ever been in! It was filled with plants and global vibes. The food was awesome and different with things on the menu like the delicious Baba Ghanoush. There are lots of neat restaurants on the river that were still nice in the fall but would be ever more amazing in the summer.

Last but not least, you have to visit the top of the Sears (now Willis) Tower. It's like a $22 ticket and you can stand in the Sky Deck which is a clear box hanging off the side of the 103rd floor. It's scary, touristy, but awesome!! This tourist attraction did not disappoint.

I'm sure there are a million more awesome parts to Chicago but these were the best parts of our three day trip. Bookmark this for a future trip! I loved this city.
