Sometimes no matter how much we need a vacation, all we have time for is a quick getaway. Even I can have a finite about of time I can be out of the office, but adventure beckons and I go on the search for a destination within driving distance of my home in Carmel, Indiana. Chicago is a great town to explore and re-explore. Although I have been many times (especially when my children were younger), there always seems to be something new to check out—particularly in the food department.
Recently, The Man and I spent the weekend in Chicago with my stepson. We were looking for activities that were (hopefully) fun for an almost-twenty year-old. I booked our Virtuoso preferred property, the Park Hyatt Chicago and reached out to the fabulous hotel concierge for assistance. The concierge helped me create an entire weekend’s itinerary offering suggestions and giving insight as to what is new in the city and the hours of operation of tours and restaurants.
