Last weekend, I had the wonderful pleasure of taking my little sister to Chicago for a trip to celebrate her high school graduation. We had a great time and while I’d been to Chicago a number of times on business, I’d never been as a tourist. It was so much fun! From the visit to Lincoln Park’s conservatory and zoo (both FREE) to walking the Magnificent Mile to visiting Navy Pier, each venue we visited was like visiting to a new place. The best part, of course, is that we were there with the locals celebrating the Cubs’ World Series victory. Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park were swamped with revelers who were singing and shouting and having so. much. fun!
Of course, one of the most fun things about travel is the food, right? Chicago is known for incredible food and is home to some of my favorite chefs (Rick Bayless!). However, on this trip, we didn’t want to have reservations to limit us and…we were traveling on the cheap. For fun, I thought I’d share some of what we noshed on while in the Windy City.
Have you been to Chicago? What’s your favorite Chicago eat?
