Whirlwind in the Windy City

Recently, the Marketing team at Hipmunk flew to O’Hare airport in the windy city for a 24hr. whirlwind stint in Chicago.

We stopped by Giordano’s on Jackson Blvd. in Chicago’s Loop district and were greeted with the thickest pizza these West coasters had ever seen; because when in Rome, you order the stuffed crust pizza.

We continued on our way, darting around the city, remembering to snap shots of everything from ginormous knitted sculptures in front of Hyatt Hotel’s HQ, to Chi-town’s infamous Cloud Gate (AKA “The Bean”).

Here are our favorite memories from our Chicago excursion!…

Chicago reminds us of a cross between San Francisco, with its intimate, metropolitan feel and friendly folk, and New York, due to historic districts filled with art deco buildings. This city truly has a beautifully eclectic mix of antiquity and unexpected bursts of color. Bravo, Chicago…

What are your suggestions for local Chicago spots with perfect photo ops, best festivals to visit, or food stops that are a must-do? We’d love to add them to our Chicago bucket list!

Happy travels!
