WHAT TO DO IN CHICAGO (A LOCALS GUIDE TO EAT, DRINK, STAY, EXPLORE)
In this post Lisa share’s with us her insider tips on the best things to do in Chicago for those looking for the best places to eat, stay, drink, and explore.
Why Visit Chicago?
It’s a wonderful place to visit to see world renowned architecture (with one of the best skylines in the world), world-class museums and public art, parks, food from around the world, and the amazing and huge lakefront with the lakefront trail (Lake Michigan is so big that we can’t see the other side, so it appears we are on an ocean).
This is an amazing art-filled park right downtown. See a free concert, snap photos of the “Bean”, check out the video fountains, just enjoy the gardens, or grab a beer at vast outdoor beer garden at the Park Grill.
The area is full of some great architecture like the Willis Tower (Sears Tower), the Jeweler’s Building, the Cultural Center, the Thompson Center, The Board of Trade and more along the Chicago Riverwalk trail.
This is Chicago’s most popular shopping street. Michigan Avenue’s most popular stretch is just about a mile long (hence it being called the Magnificent Mile) and full of all the favorite shops like Macy’s, Nike, the Disney Store and the Apple Store.
Rent a bike and ride for miles north from Navy Pier, through Oak Street Beach, to North Avenue Beach (stop for a beer and a burger at Castaways at the Boat House), watch some volleyball and enjoy the view of the city.
