1 12 hour bus ride later and I ended up in the Windy City. We were only able to spend the weekend but from just this small taste of Chicago I cannot wait to go back. Our visit went a little something like this:
Friday arrival: straight off the bus to deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati’s, checked into our hotel, walking around and shopping on the Magnificent Mile, taking Shake Shack back to the hotel room and hanging out.
Saturday: LOLLAPALOOZA – see previous post for details.
Sunday: Art Institute of Chicago, touristy stuff like the bean, took the subway to Wicker Park neighbourhood for some WICKED tacos, then strolling around and heading home.
All in all, it was a fantastic trip and I fell in love with the city. Saw the sights, ate (way too much of) the food, and saw some great performances. If I had an hour or two to spare I would have tried to go up the Sears/Willis tower to see the glass floor! If anyone has been, let me know how it is! Guess that just means I’ll have to go back someday soon…
