I have been to Chicago many times and love it more and more each time I visit.

There is something for everyone from gorgeous restaurants, shops, architecture, historic landmarks, museum, zoo, parks, Michigan Lake and lots more.

I tend to go to Chicago in the snow season as I just love seeing Chicago covered in pretty snow. It is very cold but it is fabulous. If it becomes too cold to walk outside, then there are plenty of warm coffee shops, restaurants and shops to visit to get warm.

My favourite places are Hollywood Diner and Stan's Donuts in Wicker Park. This is a MUST for everyone. Transportation is so easy and cheap using the L train system within and around Chicago. If you need to go somewhere outside the scope of the numerous lines then Uber is safe, affordable and readily available. My favourite accommodation options are Urban Holiday Lofts in Wicker Park and Freehand Chicago in downtown Chicago.

I just love the people in Chicago - always friendly, helpful and welcoming. I look forward to visiting again in 2020.

My daughter's husband's one set of grandparents live in Chicago. She too has been there many times and I am very excited to get to visit there one fine day too. Thanks for your eloquent writing and wonderful tasty bits for us to see the world through your eyes. It is truly lovely indeed.
