Even though New Paltz its quite nice and beautiful it can be boring sometimes to stay all weekends doing the same, this is why we wanted to go somewhere else, to take advantage of the weekend and the relatively good climate to begin a trip. We chose Chicago. Being a student is not easy, having so many things to pay since you are far from home, so making a trip while protecting your pocket is a quite challenging! I totally recommend Expedia, it is very easy to use and offers great packages including hotel and round trip! Imagine, we flew with American Airlines and stayed at the Wyndham Riverfront in downtown Chicago, all of this for 300 bucks, there was no doubt, the windy city was calling us.
We enjoyed it a lot, buying a ticket for the hop on hop off was the best idea, you get to know everything at a very good price. We walk down Michigan Street which was full of beautiful stores and delicious restaurants, we visited the sky deck at Willis Tower, we took too many pictures at Cloud gate, we enjoyed being at Navy Pier which has great places to eat and buy souvenirs, we visited the Aquarium and finally we watch the Superbowl at the hotel. Even though we stayed for 3 days they were enough to enjoy Chicago. I will totally recommend visiting the city, and if anyone wants to go, please tell me so I can go back!
