Growing up, if you had asked me if I could go anywhere in the world where would it be, I would have answered Chicago without a pause. I have since traveled to a few different cities, states, countries, and continents, but I still hadn't made it to Chicago. I had the opportunity to make a quick trip just after Christmas and I must admit it is a great city!
So why Chicago?!
I wanted to go to a Cubs game,
eat a Chicago dog,
go on the architectural tour,
and hang out with Oprah.
It's winter and cold so I had to make a few adjustments to the list. I took a photo outside of Wrigley Field (it was closed due to construction), ate a dog outside of the stadium, looked at most pretty buildings while making stops inside stores to warm up, and took a photo with Oprah's doorman.
After completing the list, we made a bonus stop at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
The zoo is free and completely fabulous.
The skyline is beautiful day or night.
