To me, Chicago is the best place to be. I have lived in this town my entire life, but I speak from experience. I have traveled around the world most of my life. I have visited Hong Kong, New York City, Jamaica and many other places. However, Chicago is the city that offers so much. The fact of the matter is that there are many sites to visit.
When in Chicago, one of the best sites to see is the Michigan Avenue Bridge. This bridge, which crosses over the Chicago River, gives visitors and residents a unique look at the city and various skyscrapers. Although some historic bridges are plain, the Michigan Avenue Bridge features a number of memorable sculptures that have lasted the test of time. This bridge has hosted numerous engagement and wedding photos.
Another fantastic site, which is not nearly as old as the Michigan Avenue Bridge, is Millennium Park. This site was originally a place for waste, but former mayor Richard Daley and the city council came together and created a park to be enjoyed by citizens and guests. Located in the downtown district, people can enjoy a break from busy activities. The landscaping is done perfectly, and there are many places to explore. Furthermore, there are activities and programs for people of all ages.
Finding a place to stay in Chicago is nearly as important as deciding what to do and where to go. The options for hotels are nearly limitless, and there are plenty of places around the city to stay. One could stay in downtown Chicago, and see all the lights and the action. Or, one may prefer a historic hotel, like one that Al Capone once frequented.
When I travel around the United States, I like to visit diners. A favorite one in Chicago is Glenn’s Diner. This restaurant, which is off of West Montrose, has many great dishes that are served daily. One of the reasons that I love Glenn’s Diner is that is serves breakfast throughout the entire day. This enables me to come when I want to, and I do not have to worry about whether I will be able to have breakfast or not. Besides breakfast, Glenn’s Diner has some delicious seafood and food combinations that may come across as unique. Still, all of the food is delicious. In fact, Glenn’s Diner is known for serving a nice variety of cereals.
Stop by for a night or a week, and be amazed at the great opportunities and adventures that are awaiting all who visit. Do not miss out on an amazing experience.
