Chicago Trip Itinerary

Coming to Chicago for the first time was quite overwhelming at first because it’s a city and it has a lot to see. However, until I researched a few days before my trip and received several suggestions from friends who’ve lived there, I felt I had a grip on things I wanted to see and do prior to visiting. Therefore, I wanted to share with you the information I had both suggestions from friends and what I found online that helped me on my trip.
