Chicago: 3 Days in ‘The Windy City’

Hello, Sam here! I’m here to talk about my trip to ‘The Windy City’ back in 2015. It was one of my roommate’s birthday weekend and we all felt like we needed a getaway – what better way to celebrate than a trip to Chicago?

Because this trip was so long before the inception of this blog, my memory is a bit hazy  so I am just going to compile a list of things to see, eat, and do while in Chicago. These attractions are surely not to be missed!

  • Visit one of Chicago’s many great parks and see historic landmarks like Buckingham Fountain & The Giant Bean (Fun Fact: The Buckingham Fountain is the fountain featured in the opening credits for the show ‘Married With Children’)
