Chicago Travel Guide + Restaurant Recs

Hiiiiiii guys! This week I spent three days exploring the Windy City and had an absolute blast. I was there for baseball (of course) and to cheer on my hubby while he pitched against the White Sox. Since this trip was the only time that the Red Sox play a team in Chicago this season, Drew and I made sure to pack in as many trendy restaurants as we could! Naturally, I also made time to attend a few awesome Chicago fitness classes, which is something that I really love to do when visiting a new city. 

Here's a peek into our quick trip to Chicago, as well as a list of places we would love to try during our next trip to this beautiful city!

Restaurants we went to:

  1. Goddess and the Baker - obsessed!! Amazing for breakfast, lunch, or quick healthy snack.
  2. RPM Italian - Delicious food with swanky atmosphere. Definitely a must!
  3. Hub 51 - went for drinks, fun, great menu with a variety of foods from sushi to burgers.
  4. Gilt - We went for drinks, super cool spot located near Hub 51
