You made an impression on me.
You left me wanting more after my weekend trip.
I can’t stop thinking about you.
If you have never been to the windy city, you are missing out. Go! You won’t be disappointed. I visited in the early fall of 2017, on the weekend of the Open House Chicago.
Open House Chicago is a free event that takes place all throughout the city, put on by The Chicago Architecture Foundation. There were 200+ buildings (skyscrapers, repurposed mansions, opulent theaters, exclusive private clubs, private offices and breathtaking sacred spaces.) that are normally closed are require a ticketed tour to explore. But on this particular weekend, all these incredible architectural achievements are open to the public for free! This is a great way to fall in love with Chicago because you get to learn about her background story and see the most beautiful hidden gems.
Here are just some of the gorgeous architectural highlights of Chicago!
This whole city in stunning. But don’t miss out on the Open House Chicago, you will get access to historical buildings and spaces that otherwise – no one is allowed to see. It feels VIP while being free. I highly recommend it.
