Today: NYC, Tomorrow: Chicago
Tomorrow (or rather, today, since it's currently 2am) we head west! We'll stop halfway through the country and end up in a city that we have been so nostalgic for lately: Chicago. Daniel lived in Chicago for three years (which means I basically lived in Chicago for three years) but neither of us have been back for nearly two years, so this trip is long overdue. Then, after time spent in Chicago, we'll be traveling north and spending time in a part of the country we haven't yet visited: Grand Rapids, Michigan.
So what's on our itinerary? You can look forward to posts about:
- Jet skiing in Lake Michigan
- The Art Institute of Chicago
- Second City
- Fireworks at Navy Pier
- Lincoln Park Zoo
And in Michigan we'll be exploring:
- Founders Brewing Co.
- The Great Lakes
- Grand Rapids
Of course, one of the reasons we're so excited about returning to Chicago is for the food! When it comes to all-American cuisine, Chicago has no competition! We'll be chowing down at:
- Lou Malnati's & Giordano's(deep dish pizza - of course)
- Portillo's(hot dogs)
- Sarks in the Park(breakfast food)
- Weber Grill(BBQ)
- Cheesies(grilled cheese & mac n'cheese)
- Kuma's Corner(burgers)
We're particularly excited to do some research - for blogging purposes, of course - and answer the question "who has the best deep dish pizza?" Stay tuned!
