Chicago, Illinois

Chi Town!

The Windy City!

Chicago is called a few different names.

The Bean

Have you BEAN to Chicago? I have BEAN missing this city!

This is a touristy destination but you have to get glamour shots up close and personal with the bean. You even have to go under the bean and take pictures laying down and looking up. It’s the thing to do when seeing this iconic mirrored piece of artwork that reflects the city onto its surface.

Sky Deck Chicago

Night vs Day: they are both a must because it is two different stunning views of Chicago. You ride an elevator 103 floors up in the Willis Tower. You then have the courage to step out on a piece of glass dangling above the city. It takes your breath away in a good way. You feel as if you’re on top of the world literally and dangling your feet. There is a line to take pictures so you have to be swift and know how you want to pose. The admission is $25 for an adult and you can buy it ahead of time or when you get there.

We ate brunch on the 95th floor with another majestic view of Chi Town. We decided on brunch. We reserved tickets in advance. It was $65 for brunch and it was all you can eat. This was worth the experience and the view of the Windy City. This is at the John Hancock Center building

One activity we did was biking around Chicago. This was a fun experience and a different way to see the city.


1. The London House Rooftop Bar at the Hilton was an amazing view of the city. It was right next to our hotel that we stayed at: The River Hotel. It was a very chic and modern hotel near London House.

2. Brunch Chicago: Yes Brunch is the name of the food place. Let me tell you it was the most amazing brunch. I had a croissantwich with potatoes.

Tapas and a taste of Spain. We ate here for dinner. They also have brunch available too.


We stayed at the Sonder in the Plymouth Building. It was a very chic place with security codes to get in the front door and then the room. It was a great location to everything also. They had a cute rooftop.

Clubs/night life

-Tao (I went here on New Year’s Eve and it was the place to be: I paid $200 for entry and that included drinks from 9-1 and finger foods).

(These are a few I have been to)
