Chicago City Guide
We recently took a long weekend trip to the big city of CHICAGO! We found a crazy good deal on Hotwire, and it was too good to turn down!
We had such a blast site seeing and taking in the Chicago city air. We stayed at the amazing Kimpton Gray. We love staying at Kimpton Hotels whenever possible, and this hotel was a dream! From the decor to the service! We got our rooms for 49$ a night! WHAT! It’s a 5 star and that is crazy good! My hub is a deal GURU! My bro, hub and I went and each of our rooms were beautiful. I loved the history of the building. And of course Kimpton does a free wine hour every night, so you know we took advantage of that~! They even welcomed us with champagne and a sweet card. And all Kimpton’s are pet friendly!
We stopped at Goddess and the Baker for breakfast(2 times), and I had the Avocado Toast and an iced coffee! It is a must go-to if you visit! They also have a ton of yummy baked treats. I had to take home a piece of their famous rainbow cake!
We also had pizza at the famous Giadorno’s Pizza! Their deep dish is crazy good!
We loved just walking around the city, and of course we had to go by the river! It was still Green from St. Patty’s day!
We also took advantage of the free bikes our hotel offered and rode them all the way to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Who knew the lake was so beautiful there!
Our hotel bar, Vol. 39, was AMAZING! The vibe was so great, and the drinks were just as good! We sat at the bar and loved the staff!
We found a rooftop bar where we enjoyed the view of the city, along with boozy snowcones!
And you must get donuts! We had 2 different kinds! One from the cutest little truck – Firecakes Donuts! IT was so good. The 2nd kind was Stans Donuts. ALSO so tasty. and cute packaging and you know I’m all about that!
Of course we walked to see the famous Bean at Millennium Park!
