Chicago has a beautiful skyline. It's a big city with a midwest feel. We were only there for a day and a half, but we loved it.
We stayed at Hi-Chicago Hosel downtown. It was a great place to catch a train anywhere.
Filter Coffee, in Wicker Park, was a hip place to get work done and read a book. I loved their vintage floral couches and their sweet potato fries
When in Chicago it's nice to visit Reckless Records, I picked up a Joanna Newsom record.
If you're in Chicago in July and like to snack, check out Taste of Chicago.
