Things I loved about Chicago

While I loved Nashville, I really loved Chicago. Here are some of my favorite things about Chi-town.
  • You can walk everywhere, and there is so much to see!
  • One minute you feel like you're in a big city, but you hop on the train and a few minutes later, you're in Lincoln Park {or someplace else!}.
  • Gino's east {famous Chicago pizza}.
  • Macy's at Christmas time.
  • Walking around in a coat, scarf, gloves, and Uggs.
  • Seeing Snow in the weather forecast on my iPhone.
  • The bean! Oh, how I loved the bean.
  • Lincoln Park. The most wonderful place I've ever been. I loved it.
  • Starbucks. I loved walking the streets with a caramel macchiato, although my new fave {thanks, Kels} is a nonfat peppermint latte. Too bad those are seasonal.
  • Not needing a car. You can hop on the train or take a cab.
  • Everything is right there. You can be at a clothing store one minute, and a few shops down there's a CVS. Things are a lot more spread out than in LA.
  • A cab driver told us that every summer there are movies played in the park. So charming.
  • The theater. You can walk there, too! No 45 min drive downtown and $15 parking.
  • The trees.
  • Everyone walking around in coats. It really makes the season feel so much nicer.
  • Navy Pier.
  • The lights. The buildings. The sounds. Such a beautiful city.
  • iKelsey. Not sure how I would have found my way around without her.
