Windy Weekend in Chi-Town Day One!

I know it is cliche but this is exactly what our trip was....


but it was a blast. 

Keith had a Town Car pick me up at the Airport while he was busy at work.

We stayed at The Palmer House Hilton in The Loop and it was fabulous!

This would be a lovely place for a wedding. I want to go back at Christmas just to see this hotel decorated. 

We hit the ground running and set out for a stroll right after checking in and did not return until time to get ready for dinner. 

We hit Navy Pier

We came across these guys fishing on the ice. Yes, they are standing on the ice.

We visited the Top of The John Hancock Building-
Keith did not care for that and will kill me for saying that out loud on here. 

We strolled down Magnificent Mile and took in some shopping before stopping in at Gino's for some Deep Dish Pizza. 

I love the trains here how they go right through the city like this. 

Resting our feet after a loooong 9.6 miles, we mapped our walk. 

We headed out for dinner at The Italian Village. This was the most amazing meal ever, besides Keith's Veal Picatta. 

This is said to be one of the oldest Italian Restaurants in Chicago and I will say the BEST!


We ended our first evening enjoying the Lovely Hotel Lobby and Bar area. 

This was a happening place! 


  1. WOOHOO!! That's where we stayed when we went to Chicago! emailing you now!

  2. You did all fun things on your first day! I can't wait to read what you did the rest of your trip.

    You need to visit in the summer. It's like a totally different city. People go bananas because it's so cold the rest of the year!
