City Series: Chicago

The first time I visited Chicago was in March 2015 for spring break. A few of us from our freshman hall went up to visit one of our friends who moved there after graduation. I immediately fell in love with the city. It’s walkable, beautiful, and vivacious. It’s CHITOWN. I’ve been there now three times and every time I seem to fall more in love with it. This past fall I went there with my husband for his 10 year high school reunion, and it was so sweet getting to experience the city with my best friend.

Here are a few of my top sights & bites for the city of Chicago!
