The Windy City, Chi-Town - whatever you call it, Chicago is the perfect place to visit for a weekend getaway.
Chicago is a city with stunning architecture.
And, of course, the Bean.
Did I mention the architecture, though? It's everywhere.
The Architecture Boat Tour is a great way to see a little bit of everything, and learn while soaking up the sun on the water.
Enjoy a coffee and bite downtown at
Take your coffee to-go and stroll over to Willis Tower.
There are great look outs where you can get a bird's eye view of the city.
And a glass walking deck, if you're the adventurous type!
When visiting Chicago, I highly recommend you spend an afternoon on the Gangster Bus Tour. The tour guides come dressed in character too!
You can always take in a Cubs game at the historic Wrigley Field, or watch the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Eat + Drink
And make sure you grab a slice of deep dish at one of the many pizzerias. I went for the famous Lou Malnati's pie.
We capped that off with drinks at The Redhead Piano Bar - a local favourite for that sweet sound of Chicago blues and jazz.
All-in-all, the Windy City is the perfect weekend getaway.
