Beautiful Weather in Chicago

Chicago, IL, United States
5 Kudos
Flag
Back to Chicago for a weekend in October - we lucked out, and the weather was great! Perfect sunshine, and just a bit of autumn's crsipness in the air. Coming from Boston, I think I know the city life, until I get to a "real" city - you know, Chicago, New York, LA. We spent plenty of time wondering the streets, window shopping, and even snuck in a fancy brunch while there. Tell me that's not the city life! We stayed at the Londonhouse, right along the river. It's in the perfect location, and the views from the roofdeck bar are fantastic.

LondonHouse Chicago, Curio Collection by Hilton
Great hotel, fantastic location, and much higher class than I typically stay in - splurged just a bit :)

Points of interest

Millennium Park
If you're in Chicago, you have to get the touristy photo at the Bean!

Restaurants

City Winery at the Chicago Riverwalk
Really great spot to sit and enjoy the river breeze. Not sure if I like the Rose glasses as much as the rest, but you might as well try it!
Yolk - South Loop
Great spot for a hearty breakfast or brunch - and it's BYOB!

Shopping

Head to the top floor and grab a coffee at Starbucks for a decent view of the city.
