A Summer Day in Chicago

I can finally cross visiting Chicago off my bucket list. I almost moved to the Midwest on a whim so I’m not sure why it took so long for me to finally visit. Here is what I did on a summer day in the beloved city known as Chi Town.

Signature Room

You can visit the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) for spectacular views of the city or you can visit the John Hancock building (or as I like to call it the #topofthecock). The Hancock building has a viewing deck known as the 360 but one floor up they have a restaurant and lounge called The Signature Room. You get the same views but one floor up.

I came for a Sunday brunch. The restaurant is pricey but the views make it worth it and considering you are not paying admission as you would on a viewing deck, I think it’s worth it. https://www.signatureroom.com

The Bean

It’s known as The Bean but the official name is Cloud Gate. You will find this amazing piece of art at the beginning of Millennium Park. The Bean is so much cooler in person than it is in any picture. I must say it’s my favorite piece of art to date and it’s so incredible I think it’s from another planet. If you go under the bean it’s like being in another universe, it’s very trippy.

Wrigley Field

I did not attend a game but I did take in the area. I really loved the vibe of the surrounding bars and restaurants and I was able to get a few pics of the outside of the field.

I enjoyed my stay in the Windy City and can not wait to go back. I already have a list of things I would like to do.

Attend a Cubs game

Architecture Boat trip

Navy Pier

Sears Tower for glass floor pictures

Bike ride along the river

  1. I loved Navy Pier, like you though I only had a day there and it’s really not enough to see all of the city. The Bean is particularly cool though 🙂

  2. I have visited Chicago several times. Last month, I stayed at Wrigley Hostel, a block east of the stadium and also enjoyed the ambiance of the area, especially Addison & Clark. A walk along Addison to the Lake was a must, of course.
