We hit almost all of the tourist-y spots.
And walked. a lot.
We shopped (of course).
Strolled down the famous Magnificent Mile.
All along State street.
Saw the famous Chicago Theater.
Ate Cupcakes at both Sprinkles and Magnolia Bakery.
Stopped by Cloud Gate (the bean). Which needs a good scrubbing asap. (Pictured above)
Ate Chicago-style hotdogs at Portillo's. A first for both of us. Verdict: delicious!
Got doughnuts at the sinfully delicious Doughnut Vault.
Walked through Lincoln Park.
And down Armitage Avenue.
Ate dinner at Table Fifty-Two Friday night.
And at RPM Italian on Sunday night.
And at Hot Chocolate on Monday night.
(See.. I wasn't kidding about the plenty part. Don't judge. I've been eating salad since she left.)
We had such a fun time.
I was sad to see her go but we're already planning her next visit (this summer)! Stops at the Art Institute and Randolph Street Market will be made. And whatever summer festivals are going on at the moment.
Chicago people: where do you love to take out-of-towner friends?
