Being One of Those People in Chicago

Living in the entertainment capital of the world, I am no stranger to tourists. I see them every day every second. I am also guilty of being a tourist in my own town as well - why not? it's exciting to explore a new place!

Chicago Public Library. 

Millenium Park. 
if you want a photo here with no one around, come early. by early, i mean real early, maybe 5am?

Chicago Tribune. 

Navy Pier. 

Wrigley Field. 

Lincoln Park Zoo. 

Lincoln Park Conservatory. 

Art Institute. We were under the intentions that it was free on Thursdays from 5-8p, however, it was only for Chicago residents - we did not qualify. 

Willis Tower. 


John Hancock building. 

Ready for fall!
Head up to the 96th floor to grab a drink (or two), and to enjoy yet another glorious view of the skyline. Ladies, bring your camera to the restroom! That sounds weird, but you won't regret it! 
Rookery Building. 

no entry allowed upstairs. sad face. 

but you can get a view of the famous rookery stairs from the 2nd floor of the Brooks Brothers store. 

These are a few main destinations on our list. There are so many more places to see, as a life of a tourist is never complete. If you ever see yourself visiting Chi-Town, make sure you also make a reservation for Girl & the Goat months in advance, visit the Purple Pig, and take a trip to Hubbard street for an unforgettable night out.
