Chicago, Illinois

As we continue exploring the U.S., we decided to visit one of our favorite cities in the country. There's truly nothing like summertime Chi. This was our third trip to the Windy City, but easily our favorite trip. 

We visited Garfield Park Conservatory, Skydeck Chicago and Giordano's on our first day. The second day we indulged in a little retail therapy on The Magnificent Mile, then relaxed on Lake Michigan. We went to St. Louis for a week to visit Kandace's niece Brynlee, then returned to Chicago for one last hoorah. On our last day, we stopped by The Bean for a few photos, had drinks at London House, then ate the best brunch ever at Nookie's

Albiet brief, it was the perfect kickoff to our summer travels. I can't wait to do it all over again next year.
