Chicago Bucket List for the Summer

Moving from a small town to a big city can be scary even if its just temporarily. For the summer I have the opportunity to live in Chicago and explore the wonderful city. With limited time and only two months left, I’m determined to make the most of time I have here. Coming from a small town, I have a ton of appreciation for all the activities you can do here daily. There’s always a festival on the weekends, tons of restaurants to check out and plenty of sight seeing to do. Although my ultimate goal was to walk the street of Chicago like a real Chicagoan (do people use that term?) and not look like a tourist, lost and scared out of their mind.

I’ve always dreamed of living in Chicago from a young age. There’s something about a big city with endless possibilities that always captured my eye and ever since I have found any excuse to visit. Now that I’m here, through googling my heart out and checking out Instagram accounts like Chicagobucketlist , I have created my one of a kind bucket list personalized for me.  With so much to see I have narrowed down a few of my summer goals for the Windy City!
