9 Chicago Landmarks You Must See!

Chicago City Skyline

I took a quick trip to Chicago a couple of weeks ago to visit one of my best friends who recently made the move to the windy city. We only had 72 hours to hang out and we packed in as many activities as we could. Chicago is a great city and if it’s your first time visiting, I’d suggest hitting up some of these spots.

Catch a show at the Chicago Theatre
