Chicago Weekend Guide
Chicago has so much to see and do from museums to amazing food. Here are my top recommendations if you only have 48 hours!
Visit the Art Institute of Chicago. If you’re a student, senior or Illinois resident you can get tickets at a discount.
1
If you prefer more modern art, the Museum of Contemporary Art has an awesome collection too.
2
They always have interesting exhibitions featuring a diverse set of artists and they also have a restaurant.
You’re going to be hungry after all of that art! Big Star Taco in Wicker Park is a must-visit for their delicious margs and Mexican food.
3
It’s not a trip to Chicago without some deep dish so try out Lou Malnati’s for a classic Chi Town slice.
4
If atmosphere is equally as important to you as food, you should definitely visit Hampton Social. We went for dinner and brunch, both were amazing.
5
For a splurge dinner, Siena Tavern is a must. The service is amazing and the food can’t be beat.
6
Go for a walk and take in the scenes! Magnificent Mile is Chicago’s answer to Fifth Ave and has plenty of cool shops to pop into.
7
Check out the locally owned boutiques too, like Moon Voyage! Really cute selection of clothing and accessories.
8
Don’t forget to take a picture at the Cloud Gate sculpture also known as “The Bean.”
