12 Hours in Chicago | Illinois, USA Travel Diary

Watch in 1080p HD!
I was in transit in Chicago for a fraction of a night and a steamy 36 degree (97 Fahrenheit) morning back in May – just enough time to wander a few blocks to Millennium Park and get a feel for this vibrant, big city. My next stop here needs to be for 10 days, not hours!

    Downtown is a bit touristy, but I can give you a list of really cool places to go for your next trip, since I’ve lived downtown for the last 5 years

    • Matilda says:

      Thank you Alex, that would be great! I’d love some tips for next time when I’ll have plenty of time to explore properly. Feel free to leave them in the comments here and I’ll come back to this video before I go! 👍 x

    I love Chicago so much. I moved away a couple years ago and I miss it a lot. If you have an opportunity to go back, check out Second City (sketch comedy), Museum Campus, and see a sports game if that’s your thing. Or go to any of the theaters/concert halls for a show. Navy Pier has a beautiful view on the Ferris wheel but is otherwise not worth it. And of course you’ve got to try a Chicago dog sans ketchup. Hope you had a nice time!

    • Matilda says:

      Thank you so much Erin! I’ll definitely come back to the comments on this video to plan for my next visit 👍 x

      Now that I think about it, one of my favorite things about Chicago is the food. So many good restaurants scattered all over the city. Lots of fun bars, too.
