Last month my daughter and I visited the city of Chicago in celebration of her high school graduation. While I had been to the city of Chicago twice before, both were very brief trips. I have always considered Chicago one of my favorite US cities. However, my impression was based largely on walking around the Loop, visiting the Art Institute, and taking the architectural boat tour. Fortunately, my limited positive experience held up.
Chicago is America’s most miraculous achievement: a business, artistic, intellectual and cultural mecca 1,500 miles from any ocean. There are so many great things to do in Chicago. The museums, attractions, and experiences are as great as those in any American city. The number and variety of restaurants is impressive. And there are numerous places to stay, from budget to luxury. If you’re looking for accommodations, AllTheRooms offers a search engine which will show all of your options, from hotels to hostels all in one place, and recommends some of the best. I’m happy to say that my daughter and I had a fabulous time in the city of Chicago. And if you follow in our footsteps, I guarantee that you will as well.
