Sightseeing Sundays: Chicago's Most Important Must-See
I just returned from a wonderful girls' weekend in Chicago and am utterly exhausted, but I wanted to tell you about one "must-do." I will write and share a full article about how to have a great girls' weekend in Chicago soon :)
For me, the must-do is driving to the Museum Mile and getting the best view of the city in front of the Chicago Adler Planetarium. I am obsessed with experiencing the best view of whatever city I am visiting, and while sometimes this means getting vertical, in Chicago it means getting some distance from the Navy Pier, the marinas, and the skyline in order to see it all in one grand panoramic view.
Breathtaking and quintessentially Chicago with views of the grand architecture, the gorgeous blue lake shoreline, the active Chicago Riverwalk, and the throwback pier where everyone is out and about enjoying Chicago dogs, pizza, beer, and old-school fair rides.
Perfect photo op, and perfect way to start or end your Chicago visit.
