Right now we are driving on our way to Chicago!
I am SO excited! Living only 5 hours away, I can’t believe that I have only been to Chicago once.
We are headed to Chicago so I can attend the Midwest Moms Media: Brands and Bloggers Summit on Saturday.
I’m so excited to connect with some exciting Midwest Moms, awesome brands (Doubletree, GMC, Flatout Bread, Verizon and more!) and learn to grow my blog more!
We are arriving in Chicago early so we can explore the city! We will be staying at the Best Western River North Hotel and I can’t wait!
The Best Western is the only Downtown Chicago Hotel that offers FREE parking! I’ve been looking up parking costs around the city and they are high! For a family, this will definitely save some money!
It’s also close to a lot of downtown attractions and restaurants! Heath is happy that the Best Western has its own pizzeria, Pizzeria Ora. You know we will be there! 😉
As far as other attractions…I’m just wanting to explore Michigan Avenue! There are so many shops to explore!
I’m really looking forward to visiting the Shedd Aquarium. I know that Hayden will absolutely love it!
While I’m at the conference, Heath and Hayden will be visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo, one of the country’s oldest Zoos! I’m quite jealous of the fun they will have!
We will be in town until Sunday! Do you have any other suggestions on what we should do (and where we should eat?)
Make sure to follow me on Twitter where I’ll be sure to be tweeting our adventures!
