Only 1/2 mile away: Move aside touristy, over-priced Magnificent Mile or trendy Lincoln Park - The Fulton Market Neighborhood is the place to be in Chicago! "Some call it the West Loop. Others prefer restaurant row. But no matter what name you use to describe Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood, there’s one thing we can all agree on: that it’s home to some of the best places to wine and dine in the entire city. Yes, from upscale dinners to casual hangs, this westside strip’s got a little of everything!" - UrbanMatter

Under 1 mile away: Whatever your cause for celebration, you need an extraordinary location. You will find it at The Dawson. This is one of my favorite brunch/dinner spots in the winter or summer (PATIO)! The atmosphere, decor and food are all wonderful and it is great way to start your day or night! Whether it's a beautiful summer patio day or a cold winter night, The Dawson is stunning, inside and out! Aside from the amazing decor/vibe, the food and drinks are delicious and it is en route to downtown Chicago!

And while, yes, to get the full Top Chef treatment you might want to give her more famous – and more expensive – Girl & the Goat a try, casual-offshoot Little Goat Diner is a definite go-to, in our eyes. Featuring a combo of classic diner fare and funky, chef-y options, Little Goat is the perfect mix of adventure and the familiar." --UrbanMatter

Though this modernist-tinged Lettuce Entertain You spot has locations throughout the city, the Fulton Market version has got to be our favorite, featuring yummy bites, a great cocktail program, and a bakery that I may be guilty of visiting just, like, a little too often." --UrbanMatter

A mix of some of Chicago's top restaurants are all available under one roof! It's a fun environment and perfect for big groups! Time Out Market boasts three bars — a massive bar on the first floor, an indoor/outdoor rooftop bar serving Chicago-inspired cocktails, and a hidden speakeasy from the team behind Lost Lake. To find the speakeasy, just look for the bell on the second floor. Give it a ring, and a window slides open to reveal a secret tiki bar with a full menu of tropical drinks!

Wrigley Field is the oldest baseball stadium in the National League (second oldest in all of major league baseball) and just an iconic American venue! I'm obviously biased as a big Chicago Cubs fan, but Wrigley Field is one of the most historic/greatest places in the city (whether you are a baseball fan or not)! Wrigleyville has been overhauled over the last few years and has become a place to go even if you aren't a baseball fan (ice skating in the winter, bars/restaurants and concerts in the summer).

Great location for big groups! If you want to drink, but also have something fun to do aside from just drinking - punch bowl social is your spot! Karaoke (in a private room - total blast), arcade games, pool, etc. this is a great spot with a fun environment! We were crying laughing in the karaoke room!

I absolutely love the Chicago Architectural River Boat Tour so much that I have done it over 3 times with friends and family that come in to Chicago! It's super informational and fun on a beautiful day in Chicago! The tour guides are all great and I'm usually not big into tours - this one is the best!

Less than 1/2 mile: The Brew Yards is the best brewery spot in Chicago and literally blocks away (hop on a scooter in the summer, walk or just hop in an uber for a few bucks)! It's an awesome spot for beer drinks or not - it is a self serve location that has 4 breweries under one roof. You put your card in and pour your own tap, however much you want! I love it because I'm not a big beer drinker, but it lets me try a little bit of a few beers - and they sometimes have ciders on tap! The menu is always changing for the beer and the food they have! They also have a few fun little games you can play as well. It's a great atmosphere and a fun spot to go right near your stay!
