The perfect weekend getaway in Chicago, IL

The Windy City, Chi-Town - whatever you call it, Chicago is the perfect place to visit for a weekend getaway.


Architecture

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.



Sightseeing

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!



Sports

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.
