Personally, I am more of a beach kind of girl, so I definitely love the west coast a lot more, but you gotta work with what you got, am I right haha?! Since, I have lived here for a couple of years now, I have had the pleasure of visiting a few places in the Midwest and have compiled a list of some of the areas I enjoyed visiting.

Best Restaurants in Chicago
