I LOVE Chicago and the city...it can be expensive to be a tourist here (Navy Pier was a bit pricey BUT next time we go I know what to do and not to do!!).
LOOK at that city Skyline....
We stopped at #Sweet Mandy B's cupcakery....Cute lil vintage charm
Was featured on Chicago's Best (a tv show that highlights the yummy places to eat around the city)
I had the chocolate peanut butter cupcake
The kids had S'mores pie....
And my mom had an apricot bar....
And walked a few feet over to Lincoln Park Zoo (free admission as well)
We monkey-ed around a bit...and by the end of the day we were ready to put our feet up and have a cold one!!
There are many ways to see the city at a discount (ALWAYS check groupon in your town or the town you are visiting to see what the specials are..for example - I checked my email yesterday and there was a groupon for the giant pirate sailboat for a discounted admission of $17.00 - we could've done that on Monday). Do YOU have any hotspots in CHICAGO that I should try next time I'm in town?!?!?
