Size: 6 x 9
Chicago is a city of neighborhoods renowned for its skyscrapers, Lake Michigan beaches, parks, museums, sports teams, and live entertainment. And the food? Chicago is a non-stop buffet of gut-busting chow festivals celebrating everything from barbecue to deep-dish pizza, Chicago-style hot dogs (layered with mustard, never ketchup), and jibarito sandwiches.
While it’s easy to whittle away the day discovering the Art Institute of Chicago, Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel, and Cloud Gate at Millennium Park, it’s also rewarding to experience the lesser-known charms, some that are completely free of charge. But with so many incredible options, how could you possibly make the most of just one day in town? Allow Perfect Day Chicago to add the ideal daily itineraries to your next visit.
Follow along for a day or string together a few for a well curated week in the Windy City. See tucked-away gems like Oz Park, the Chicago Cultural Center’s Tiffany dome, the Violet Hour speakeasy, or Humboldt Park’s 55-foot steel Puerto Rican flags. Hunt down the resting places of famous Chicagoans at Graceland or spend the day marveling at the street art in the Wabash Arts Corridor.
