Have you ever been to Chicago?
If not it is a must! In my opinion Chicago is the most beautiful city in the US. Its stunning architecture, beautiful beaches, great free zoo, nice botanic garden, amazing museums, awesome shops and yummy restaurants. Chicago is everything you dream of, in one place. Forget New York, LA or Miami, Chicago is the place I dream of living. One day, I tell you, I will live in Chicago. Living 3 hours away from this great city, we try to go there as soon as we have a chance. Really, we already went at least 10 times. But each time we visit Chicago we rediscover the city. I love the U.S. Midwest for its 4 different seasons. A very snowy and cold winter, a hot and sunny summer, a stunning colorful fall and a … spring. Chicago is constantly changing and each season brings a different charm.
Millenium park is the happiest place with children playing in the water, the bean, the huge free playground, the pier and Damen, the hipster area. It is just a happy and dynamic city.
Now let’s talk about food. Did you know that each state of the US has its signature pizza (check here)? For Chicago, it is the deep dish pizza. Before going further I would like to apologize to my dear Italian friends. The deep dish pizza is basically a 5 cm crust with tone of cheese and tomato sauce. To that, you can add more cheese, sausage, bacon, pepper, fresh tomatoes … (the list is long). So basically, you go to one of the Giordano’s restaurant, wait outside for at least 45 minutes. Finally, you are seated and have to wait an extra 30 minutes for the pizza (make sure phone battery is full). In the end the wait is worth, it is really delicious.
