In a little over a week I will be Chicago bound to spend a few days with one of my best friends to explore a city that has been on my bucket list of places to visit for nearly a decade. With the close proximity to Minneapolis, we are finally making our trip happen and sans husband and kids. While our boys will be missed it has been forever since I have had a few days to do nothing but eat delicious food, sleep in and explore a city with nothing but our own plans to fulfill. I already know we’ll be visiting “the bean” and Willis Tower, biting into my very first deep dish pizza and sipping cocktails at the Terrace at Trump, but I’m dying to know what other hidden gems we should know about? I would love your recommendations!
