Day 1
ARRIVE

Fly into Chicago anytime before 3pm and meet up with the crew at the hotel at 5pm. Our FTLO local will walk everyone down Michigan Ave to point out some iconic spots and hidden gems. We'll snap some pics with "the bean" before getting drinks at one of Chicago's hottest rooftop bars overlooking iconic Millennium Park. After drinks, we'll indulge in some old Chicago-style Italian fare before checking out the lively Chicago bar scene.

Day 2
River cruising

After breakfast, we'll explore Chicago in the best way possible - by boat! We'll cruise (literally) down the Chicago River and learn about the city's history and iconic architecture. Once we're back on land, we'll head to the trendy West Loop neighborhood for a craft beer tasting and lunch at a beloved small-batch Chicago brewery.

 

The afternoon is open for you to explore the city before meeting back up to go see an improv comedy show at The Second City followed by some late night pizza. End the night here or go out to the bars with your new pals to make the most of your last night in Chicago.

Day 3
brunch

We'll check-out of the hotel at 11am and store our bags. Then, off to brunch at one of our favorite local spots to say goodbyes and laugh about any previous night shenanigans. Snap all the photos, exchange hugs, and head home — until your next trip! 

 

We recommend booking flights that leave after 3pm.
