If you’ve just moved here or are planning to visit for the first time, I know the city can feel overwhelming. I’ve lived here all my life and still have tons of things on my Chicago bucketlist! New restaurants, pop-up bars, and immersive experiences are fun and keep us busy, but this is my “starter pack” introduction for Chicago newbies. I want you to know how best to get around, where to stay (and why), the top classic Chicago sights, and iconic mainstay restaurants for all budgets. And of course, as a mother of two little ones, I have ideas for keeping the kids entertained and educated no matter the season! Welcome to the best city in the world!!
