TRAVEL CHICAGO

Chicago, IL, USA

I know i've been a little M.I.A lately but that's only because i've been busy traveling to the wonderful Chicago! I definitely have loads to share with you guys! First things first if you haven't been to Chicago you have to go sometime and visit some of these places there. We went to Chicago for Lollapalooza Music Festival but got there a day early so we had some free time to explore. We stayed   in Downtown so we were walkable to everything...or at least we walked everywhere (traffic is horrible in the city so we highly recommend getting that cardio in and walking). First things first we visited the Skydeck in the Willis Tower, it's such an incredible view of the city and you could step on out on the glass to get a whole new perspective of Chicago. It's one of the most incredible things completely left me breathless! It definitely gets supper packed and is a huge tourist spot so we went first thing in the morning, we got in and out very quickly. Next we went to a cute little coffee shop to catch up on our morning coffee. After that we made reservations at The Hampton Social for brunch and cocktails. By all means order the PINK DRINK, I don't even remember what was in it but it tasted like heaven and the color was so illuminating everyone ended up with one at one point or another. The food is also AMAZING as well as the cute rosé all day neon sign. Again this place also gets supper packed so definitely book a reservation and get there as early as they open for a good spot. After our bellies were full we then went to the aquarium! The aquarium here is so much fun we found ourselves at the Shark exhibit for a long period of time watching their fins sway is the most magical thing. Then came the most adorable birds Penguins! There was a particular penguin that stole the show, we watched him or her swim back and forth. The funny part was he (i'm just gonna call him he) made sure everyones eyes were on him at all times. It was rather adorable. After walking through all of the exhibits we found ourselves outside the aquarium watching the sunset beam off the water. Since we were only about a mile and a half away from our hotel we decided to walk. (Cathie and I do the most crazy things sometimes like deciding to walk back instead of catching a lyft). Did I mention we were so hungry?! Finally we ended the day with nachos and fried pickles. Such a weird combo but after walking all the way back we were beyond exhausted. This all happened the first day we were in the Windy City of Chicago. The next day Lollapalooza started and that my friends is a whole other blogpost! Needless to say Chicago was an amazing city to visit and I hope to be back eating nachos and lots of pizza....soon. Below are all of the photos from DAY 1 you can shop some of the looks below!
