A couple weekends ago my cousin and I made a girl's trip to Chicago and had an amazing time.
After arriving late Friday night we found a cool restaurant near our hotel, Epic Burger, and ended the day with some yummy food!
Saturday was our full day so we started bright and early! Taking advantage of the empty streets of course I had to take some pictures. ;) We had breakfast at Dunkin Donuts (my fav). After breakfast we explored the Gold Coast and looked at the cool Manhatten-esque houses and walked around. They had a farmers market going on and it was so cool! It seems like everyone in Chicago has a dog. And not just any dog, but the cutest dogs you'll ever see. This farmer's market was so unique because it had a crepe station, sold beautiful pink peonies and delicious slices of quiche. I definitely wanted to buy some flowers but it would have been pointless because I'd have nothing to do with them. ;)
After the farmer's market we walked all the way to Greektown and had an authentic gryo for lunch. This was a crazy long walk so a break was much needed. After walking around Greektown for a bit we headed over to the beach over by Soldier field. There was a Diplo concert going on at the same time and it was crazy. Apparently Diplo is a very famous guy that does beats. The music was so loud everywhere I can't even imagine what it sounded like in the stadium. After smoothies at the beach we went to Grant Park and there was a Blues Festival going on. I love blues music and festival food so this was a great night. After plenty of walking and a very full day we headed back to the hotel, got dessert, and had a relaxing night eating cheesecake.
All in all it was a fantastic weekend with wonderful pictures to show for it.
