    1. Yeah, many tourists order the deep dish in a hurry and then are disappointed on realizing it takes so long to cook! But it’s definitely worth the wait!

    1. Hi Kristin! Yepp, you just have to visit the Bean. You can skip Willis Tower if you don;t have a head for heights. But IMHO the view is stunning and a complete must-do!

  1. Gorgeous photos! I’ve been to Chicago a couple of times for work but never really explored the city for fun! This totally made me want some Giordanos though, omggggg yummmmm!

  2. I’ve been to Chicago many times.. well the airport that is! I’ve never really had the chance to look around properly. Your blog makes me want to make sure I do next time…

    1. Emma, hope you were at Midway rather than O’hare! O’hare is such a nightmare and always super busy. Do plan a trip to the city this summer, it’s really beautiful.

  3. Cool post! Chicago has always been on my bucket list, although I haven’t had the chance to actually explore the city. I’ve driven through it multiple times and live in Minnesota so I’m not too far away but luck has never been in my favor to visit! I’ll get there soon. Thanks for sharing how to spend the perfect day there!

    1. You should definitely visit Chicago, Sophie. Doesn’t the skyline look pretty when you drive down the I-90? Minnesota, that’s cool. I have been to the Twin Cities and enjoyed the trip.

  4. Love this post Ketki. I absolutely fell in love with Chicago when I visited in 2013. Additionally to all the great recommendations in your post I also loved hanging out at Navy Pier. Also Pizza at Giordanos is absolute perfection. My couchsurfing host took me there and I almost died and went to Pizza heaven <3 <3

    1. Thanks Madeline. I know, isn’t Chicago absolutely gorgeous?! Navy Pier is fun with the funny mirrors and ferris wheel, though touristy. I’d definitely recommend it if you are in the city for more than a day. You are bang on about pizza heaven!
