  • East Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago, United States

    Chicago looked gorgeous from our balcony. Hyatt Regency has a fairly good bar, where there is a lot of space to move around and is not squishy. We just took our breakfast from here which was a buffet but had great amount of variety. The rooms have plush b

    From Caramel Crisp, to Cheesecorn, Garrett has both your sweet and salty cravings covered. The flagship store on the Magnificent Mile often has a line around the block. I was confused with so many options in the flavor. A good idea was we picked up some o

  • Millennium Park, Chicago, United States

    Called as \"Cloud Gate\" Its glass-like reflective surface provides distorted images of Chicago skyline and visitors feel amused to see their warped reflections on \"The Bean\". It was fun sitting in this place and seeing peopl

    Short Description

    Most touristy place in Chicago, The #bean has a weird aesthetic appeal to it. Millennium park houses various events throughout the year, if you\\\'re lucky you can get into one.

  • North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, United States

    Very crowded must say! Came here for a drink on a sunny day. It is located right on the beach and offers great view of the water. More of a party spot with a DJ and a bunch of beach bros.

  • Navy Pier - Museum Campus, Chicago, United States

    You have boat tours, rides, shopping, food everything. It\'s a heaven for kids and some of us looking to unleash the child within. The boat tour throughout the city is a good deal mainly if you are short of time.

  • 360 Chicago Ave, Oak Park, United States

    The new tilt attraction was over quickly (they charge you an extra $7 on top of the $19 ticket once you\'re up there) but well worth doing just to experience how weird it is looking down/back on the building you\'re standing in. It moves down in 3 inc
