3 Reasons why Chicago should be your next getaway
If I asked you what comes to mind when someone says Chicago, you'd probably answer deep-dish pizza, Chicago hot dogs and the Windy City. Your answers would be 100 percent spot-on, as Chicago offers all of those things — and so much more. Yes, more!
The "more" made me fall head first in love with the city while on a getaway to Chicago earlier this month. I know, you're probably thinking Chi-town doesn’t exactly seem like an ideal place for a getaway, but it’s certainly a city you should experience very soon.
3 Reasons you should visit Chicago:
1. The Architecture will leave you speechless
2. Chicago has more to offer than just pizza
Don't even try to escape pizza while in Chicago. Pizza is embedded in the culture, but Chicago's restaurants have so much more to offer. Slurping Turtle offers Japanese Comfort Food, like its amazing ramen and duck-fat fried chicken. Yes, it’s as amazing as it sounds. Stan’s Donuts and Coffeeoriginates in Los Angeles but now calls Chi-town its home. Please believe me when I say you will not find another donut that will compare. Just in case you need another dose of convincing, they also serve gelato. I can't forget The Violet Hour. The Violet Hour is styled as pre–prohibition era bar. At first glance it looks like a boarded-up, abandoned building, but once inside you are introduced to some of the most creative spirits you’ve ever tasted.
3. The public transportation gets five stars
I'm a Brooklyn girl, born and raised, so I know a thing or two about public transportation. Trust me when I tell you, Chicago is one of the cleanest mass transit systems I’ve ever seen. Granted, I was only there for four days, but a lot can happen in four days. I see you CTA, looking all sexy in the transit world.
