5 Things Friday: Chicago Edition

We are headed to Chicago for a wedding soon,
so with that in mind here are a few (yes, more than 5, sorry!) of my favorite things in Chicago:

The Shedd Aquarium (I used to work there!)

The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore
Not exactly in Chicago, but a short drive--and you'll forget all about the city! (Or not, if the sky is clear you can see the skyline across Lake Michigan). Want to hit a beach in the city? Then the Chicago Park District's got what you need.

Taste of Chicago-Happens every summer and is not be missed.
It's a fantastic festival with food vendors from all over the city!

Pitchfork Music Festival-where all the "cool kids" are.

Fireside Bowl- You'll probably find some "cool kids" here too.

Wrigleyville and Wrigley Field

The L (or El)

Chicago Blues Festival

OK, now I'm just getting carried away. But, you get the idea! Chicago is awesome!

Have a great weekend,
