A Perfect Day in Chicago
Chicago is the perfect Midwestern city. With plenty of luxurious shopping, amazing restaurants, and culture galore, visiting the city never gets old. Every trip we take is different and fun! This last time we visited, we truly created a perfect day in Chicago.
Chicago with Tweens
I recently had the opportunity to visit Chicago with just my son. For school-related reasons, my daughter (and therefore husband) couldn’t join us so it became a fun one-on-one trip. Not something we get to do often, so it was very special.
1-Day Chicago Itinerary
Our last day in Chicago – we did a lot this trip but didn’t even get close to doing everything we would have liked to have done. Next time, right? In the meantime, feel free to enjoy this 1 day Chicago itinerary.
Fun Things to Do in Chicago with Kids
Today was full of fun things to do with kids in Chicago! The second day of our Chicago trip started early for me. Everyone was sleeping so I slipped out to the Starbucks across the street to get a little work done. It was relaxing and fun to people watch in a different city.
Fun with the family in Chicago
Our first day in Chicago was action-packed! Lucky for us it’s a short 3-hour drive from Indianapolis, so even with a stop, we were there early afternoon. We had a lot of Chicago fun with the family on this trip.
Big Bus Tours
When visiting a big city, I’m sure you’ve seen those big double-decker buses – the ones with open seating on top, right? Well, we had our first experience with one on our recent trip to Chicago. We rode the Big Bus and it is the ONLY way to see a city.
Chicago Shakespeare Theater
UPDATE: Peter Pan is not the current show. This summer, Chicago Shakespeare Theater is doing a production of Peter Pan. Located right in the heart of Navy Pier (very convenient for tourists and locals alike), there are two shows a day: 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
A Spy-Themed Restaurant – The SAFEHOUSE
On our last night in Chicago, we were treated to a wonderful experience at a restaurant called The SafeHouse. This is the second location for this spy-themed restaurant (the first being in Milwaukee) but I could definitely see it growing. In fact, during dinner, we mentioned several times that this would be a huge hit in the Orlando area.
Blue Man Group
Surprise is the perfect word to describe what you’ll experience at a Blue Man Group performance in Chicago.
