72 Hours in Chicago

So you have plans on visiting Chicago? Maybe a quick trip during the Winter? Here are some places to see, do, and eat if it’s your first time in Chiiiiiitown.

Millennium Park

Admission: Free.
Hours: 6am – 11pm daily

This park is where you will find the Cloud Gate, better known as “The Bean.” The best time to visit is definitely the Spring or Summer because that’s when you can see free concerts and other cool events.

Magnificent Mile

Admission: Free
If you’re in the mood to break your wallet, this is the place to be. You’ll find a bunch of luxury shops like Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor and don’t worry, they got some department stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx!

I recommend to walk this whole strip between Lake Shore Drive and the Chicago River.
