We spent last weekend (approximately 48 hours) in Chicago which was quite the trip! It was our first time visiting the city, so there was a lot of ground to cover. We stayed on Magnificent Mile so everything was pretty easy to get to, and was so happy to be surrounded by all the incredible architecture that represents so much of American history. A hectic, yet accomplished weekend that was well worth it indeed.
