48 Hours in Chicago

Chicago, IL, United States
46 Kudos
After finding very cheap airline tickets last minute, we decided to take a spontaneous trip to Chicago for the weekend. It was a great decision. After landing on Saturday morning, we walked up Lake Shore Drive to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The lakeshore was bustling with runners, bikers, and swimmers. Having never visited Chicago before, I was shocked at how big and clean the city was. We had a drink at Oak Street Beach bar. Drinks were okay but overpriced. The second day we rented the Divy bikes to see more of the city. Definitely worth the $9.95 per day. Must sees in the city - the Bean, Millennium Park, the John Hancock Signature Lounge, Lincoln Park, any place for deep dish pizza.
