We’re less than a week back from our trip to Chicago and look forward to reminiscing for purposes of writing this blog! Chicago is one of those cities you can visit time and time again and do something different each visit. We had both been, but not collectively as 2 Girls Who Travel … and with the help of Choose Chicago, this was an awesome and busy trip.
Let’s recap, shall we?
We opted to stay at Loew’s Chicago, the decked out hotel downtown – and close to Millennium Park and other attractions. Remember, we’re Uber/Lyft and walking queens! *Renting cars is overrated and so 2014 (lol).
We spent four days in Chi-Town. The cooler weather was a welcome break from hot and humid Houston. We actually got to dig the coats, scarves and sweaters out of our closets and use them! Here’s the highlights from our trip …
Now you know we wouldn’t disappoint you. We had everything from Chicago staples like deep-dish pizza (shout out to our Lyft driver Don for suggesting we go to Giordano’s) to some gems we discovered on our own via internet research.
Our Chicago City Pass gave us the opportunity to visit some pretty cool museums. The Field Museum in particular had some interesting exhibits. You’ll see. The DuSable Museum was full of Chicago’s African American history and our tour guide was so thorough. Our favorite though had to be the Art Institute of Chicago. Expect to spend at least a couple of hours there.

Despite some clouds trying to hate on us, we were able to experience some of the coolest parts of the city, from 360 views of the city 1,000 feet above Lake Michigan to a peek at President Obama’s family home in Hyde Park.
