24 Hours in Chicago with a Babe
We recently attended a wedding in New Buffalo, Michigan and decided to spend a day in Chicago on our way. We were able to fit quite a bit of eating and sightseeing into our trip.
The Art Institute of Chicago - a spectacular museum. Their modern art collection is beyond incredible. A docent told me they also have an impressionist collection that people travel from all over the globe to view.
Millennium Park - Millennium park is a great place to stroll around. The park itself is beautiful and there are several art installations that are great to view.
Architectural Boat Tour - I didn’t get to do this one, but a friend who went to medical school in Chicago absolutely loves this and has gone on the tour more than three times. I trust her.
Café Integral - I love a good alternative milk latte created from exceptional coffee by people who care. This hip shop inside The Freehand Hotel does the trick.
Xoco - Rick Bayless’s grab and go concept. Grab a sandwich and eat it along the riverwalk
Tanoshii - We went to the original location in Andersonville, ordered the chef’s special and proceeded to eat the best sushi I’ve ever had aside from in Tokyo.
Real Good Juice - I seek out the local juice companies wherever I go. Cities like New York and Miami have several options, I was only able to find Real Good Juice in Chicago. My “Juice Springsteen” was delish.
Run along the lake - in my opinion, there is no better way to view a city than to run through it. Chicago’s lakeside path allows for a refreshing run with stunning lake and city views.
Corepower Yoga - if you have a chance to step away and get in a yoga class, Corepower Yoga is one of my favorite studios in the country.
