CHICAGO IN THE FALL

by esme travels »

 

Chicago local, travel enthusiast and blogger here.

Recommendations to anyone considering visiting Chicago in the fall:

·       Head north (take Sheridan Road for the best view) to the Bahá'í House of Worship and the Chicago Botanic Gardens

·       Head slightly west to see Pilsen’s street art and murals

·       Head south to Hyde Park to see the University of Chicago architecture, Oriental Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House

·       If you’re there during the weekend of October 10, 2014 cheer on the Chicago Marathon runners at North Avenue and Wells Street, while listening to the Elvis Presley impersonator

·       If you’re there during Halloween 2014, attend the North Halsted Street Halloween Parade and/or the Sculptural Objects and Functional Art exhibit (and that is the ONLY reason to EVER go to Navy Pier)

·       If you’re there during the weekend of November 14, 2014, check-out the Chicago Humanities Festival

·       For low-pretense, high-quality, reasonable-priced dining in a comfortable atmosphere, try Mon Ami Gabi, the Pink Pig, Avec, North Pond and Girl and the Goat

·       If you want the best hotel, stay at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago (runner-ups: The Trump, The Conrad, The Peninsula and the Park Hyatt)
