Every year my friends and I go to Chicago on a girls trip, and the two of us care about to go shopping in the city and then see a show at the theater.
The two of us drink at the local bars and get sloppy drunk! It just is a shell game on what weekend all of us choose, and everybody has a tied up life and lots going on.
This year was a little different; First, finding accommodations in the city was tough! So I ended up booking us a place in Orland Park which actually was niceâ€¦ Orland Park has its own mall, parks, bars and diners. There was plenty of stuff to do; When all of us wanted to go into the city, it was only a 40 minute car ride there. The girls and I only ended up doing that a single time. It was way more fun being in a slower paced area and seeing more nature enjoy sites than the city. It also was way quieter sleeping at night and less upscale there, then another different thing was the time of year the girls and I went. I realized that our group always comes to IL while I was in the summer. I remember afternoons of 70 degrees and just covered in sweat to death carrying my shopping bags. The girls and I ended up booking our trip in May and that was perfect. It was in the mid 50s everyday which was perfect. I wore a light jacket and kept our hotel furnace at a modest temperature. It was a change from covered in sweat to death and was way more enjoyable.
