A short trip to Chicago is always fun – not quite as busy as New York but it’s got a charm of its own. Staying at the historic Hilton Chicago on South Michigan Ave is very handy for easy access to all the key sights. Firstly, the lakeside view from the hotel is amazing and secondly access to the foreshore is easy.
There are plenty of options on the Hotel’s doorstep (including the in-hotel options!). A great Ramen place is Niu B on the corner of E 9th Street. Another must have is the hotdog served at the White Sox stadium.
