Hills, wetlands, and farms occupy most of Illinois, but who cares about all that when they have CHICAGO! Known as the “Windy City,” Chicago is one of my favorite cities for many reasons; incredible food, plenty of things to do, and of course the shopping.
The Skydeck at Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), lunch at Millennium Park, biking or taking a stroll down the 18-mile stretch of Lakefront Trail bordering the edge of Lake Michigan, take a selfie with “The Bean” aka Cloud Gate, visit Shedd Aquarium, walk down Navy Pier, shop your way down Magnificent Mile, eat your way through the city comparing all the types of deep dish pizza; the options of things to do in Chicago are absolutely endless.
I love that there is something for everyone in Chicago whether you shop at TJ Maxx or Saks Fifth Avenue, whether you eat caviar or pizza, and whether you like to walk the busy streets of a city or sit in a park to admire the nature around you. Come one, come all, Chicago welcomes you.
