Top 10 Things To Do In Chicago With Out of Town Guests

Top 10 Things To Do In Chicago With Out of Town Guests

Chicago is such an amazing city! There’s so much that you can see and do, so when friends and family come to visit, it can be a little overwhelming to pick and choose. Well, if you’re wondering what to do in Chicago when you have out of town guests, here’s my fool-proof list of the Top 10 Things To Do in Chicago!

Things to Do in Chicago: Odyssey Dinner Cruise

Things to Do in Chicago: Odyssey Dinner Cruise

If you’re looking for things to do in Chicago, look no further than an Odyssey Dinner Cruise that leaves from Navy Pier! It’s such a lovely experience to share with your out of town guests or your local friends, especially if you’re celebrating a special occasion. An Odyssey Dinner Cruise is a perfect night out – complete with a fantastic view of the city from Lake Michigan, a delicious dinner and dancing! I recently hosted a dinner party on the Odyssey for my family when they were here visiting, and I thought I’d share moments of that magical night with you!

Chicago Gift Baskets – A Perfect Way to Welcome Visitors to Chicago

Chicago Gift Baskets – A Perfect Way to Welcome Visitors to Chicago

When out of town guests come to visit me in Chicago, I always like to give them a gift basket of thoughtful gifts and treats. It’s such a nice way to welcome them to the city and make them feel special! Usually, I rush around the city trying to assemble a basket full of items that would appeal to my guests and relate to Chicago in some way. But those days are now over! I recently discovered the locally owned and operated “Send Them Chicago” gift basket company and had a chance to check out their “Windy City Welcome” offering. It is so cute, and my out of town guests were thrilled with the thoughtful Chicago-themed gift!

Wedding and gala season is just starting to heat up, prompting the ever-present question, “What am I going to wear?!” When it comes to formal occasions, I’m usually a dress gal. I’m always on the hunt for plus size dresses that are versatile and make a statement like this red and black plus size party dress from Sydney’s Closet. Remember the gorgeous rose gold sequin dress a few weeks ago? (See the post here!) That was also from Sydney’s Closet.
