It’s been a long time since Canadians could visit the United States, but now that travel is starting to happen again I was lucky enough to visit Chicago for the first time! Check out everything I got up to in this video recap of my trip to the Windy City:
I did a mix of LGBTQ type things and also just your typical touristy type of stuff – and of course eating… a lot of delicious eating. From their famous pizzas to steaks, and everything in between, Chicago did not let me know when it came to the restaurants, or the attractions, or really anything!
Here are the places where I stayed, ate, and explored – as seen in the video above: Viceroy Hotel Chicago, Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, Gibson Italia, Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise, Replay Beer and Bourbon, Andersonville, Lou Malnati’s Gold Coast, Northalsted (formerly known as Boystown), Leather Archives & Museum, Kit Kat Lounge, Sidetrack, Big Chicks + Tweet, Navy Pier, and Lark.
I look forward to revisiting Chicago again in the future, next time with my fiancé, and hopefully during Pride! They have a big festival during normal times, which sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Of course, as you can see, there’s a lot for a gay person to see and do in Chicago anyway though, regardless of when you go.
