Chicago Staycation

In the last few months, I’ve noticed that one of the most frequently asked questions I get on Tumblr tends to go something like this…

“I’m visiting Chicago soon and I was wondering if you could tell me your favorite things to do in the city, what the best restaurants are, & any must-see spots I should visit?”
Especially given that it’s summer, people are traveling a lot and I’ve been getting these sorts of questions even more than usual in the last few weeks! This led me to the idea of compiling a list of some of my favorite spots in Chicago as well as some suggestions from friends! This list isn’t just for tourists, it’s meant for anyone (including residents) looking for something fun or different to do in or near the city of Chicago!
