Come Travel with Me - Chicago


I set out to Chicago this past weekend with some co-workers from my day job. We left out of MCI (Kansas City) airport and flew into MDW (Midway- Chicago). We had exactly 2 days of traveling from the moment we arrived. We bought our flight tickets about 4 months ago because the sooner you get them the cheaper the flight. We flew Southwest because they are awesome and you can earn free flights when you rack up miles from everyday purchases.

We arrived ahead of schedule as it was only an hour and ten minute flight. We stayed at the Hyatt Place Midway which was about a 15 minute free shuttle from the airport.

First thing was first - The famous Chicago deep dish pizza. I am a picky pizza eater so I was quite eager to try this "amazing" pizza as most people describe it to be. We ended up going to Giordanos which is one of the top places to go with multiple locations in the area. We chose the one that was about a 15 minute walk from our hotel as we got wonderful directions from the hotel front desk staff. We ordered our pizza and you should definitely follow the recommendations on the menu in regards to feeding per person because these pies are HUGE! They came and looked unbelievably amazing, mouth watering to the last bite delicious. I was very pleased with our experience.
