In my new weekly feature, Hometown Adventures, I’ll focus on great places to eat, have fun, and explore in Chicago!
I get a little down when I don’t have any trips planned. I know it’s not always possible to have an international journey planned so sometimes I have to remind myself that I already live in great city—Chicago!

Chicago is a different city when the when the weather is warm. Come summer the city doesn’t sleep. It’s cold for a good nine months out of the year, so I open my windows and put on my flip-flops at the first sign of warmth.
Lake Michigan is perfect for swimming, kayaking, boating, or just a leisurely day with friends. Yesterday was the warmest night I’ve experienced in months so I took a nice walk down by the lake.
