Christmas Time In Chicago

Literally #Frozen {But In The Best Way}

Chicago is magical this time of year! Even just leaving the airport, it's truly a Winter Wonderland, decked to the nine's with Christmas lights on all of the tree's, pops of red and green on every light post and store front, and Crystal Icicles and Snowflakes Dripping from Roof tops and on Tree's. It was so beautiful! My Husband and I wanted to get away to escape the Florida heat and be put in the Christmas Spirit. That surely happened in this city! We had some help planning our trip by Tulia Travel (Luxury Travel Agency) as it was going to be a short and sweet weekend so we wanted to fit in as much holiday cheer as possible before heading home to Florida. I highly recommend Julia from Tulia Travel (Also on Instagram click Here) for your luxury travel needs, and I have my friend to thank for recommending her! She did a wonderful job adding that extra Christmas Sparkle and surprise to everything we did!

Here's a list of some fun Holiday things to see & Do, and some amazing restaurants:

1. Stay at The Waldorf Astoria (They have in room fireplaces-Soo Romantic, pretty views, modern and luxurious amenities, a gorgeous lobby and is a great location in Downtown Chicago)

2. Eat a Casual Late Night Bite at Lux Bar (We got in Late Friday and thoroughly enjoyed this charming place with great service and high quality bites-Only a five minute Uber from Hotel. Highly Recommend the Cheeseburger, Sliders and Truffle Fries)

3. Enjoy The Charming, Snowy Village of Winnetka for Local Coffee Shops like Pete's, and Christmasy Shopping and Decor (Where Home Alone was Filmed, so of course had to see the town and Home Alone House)

4. Stroll Through Millennium Park after shopping on Michigan Ave (Aka Magnificent Mile) to Ice Skate, Hear Carolers and See the beautiful real Christmas Tree Decorated and the Famous "Bean"

5. Eat an AMAZING Italian Dinner at RPM Italian (Part owners are Giulianna Rancic and Husband of E!News. Extensive Wine List, and Classic Italian Dishes with Modern Twists. I had The Spaghetti and Meatball and it was to die for!!)

6. Sunday Brunch at CITE for Amazing Views from the 70th floor of the Lake Point Tower (Quiet and luxurious Atmosphere with Stunning City Views)

7. Signature Room at the Top of the Hancock for Beautiful City Views as well and Tasty Martini's

8. Winter Wonderfest At Navy Pier (Indoor Ice Skating and carnival Rides)
