Taylor Swift Tradition
I recently went on a girl’s trip with my cousin, Jenna, her best friend from high school, Lauren, and my best friend from high school, Taylor. Taylor recently moved to Chicago so it was time that we paid her a visit.
This group of girls has started a tradition. A tradition that begins with the queen, Taylor Swift.
Jenna and I started attending Taylor Swift concerts beginning with her RED tour in 2014. We brought Lauren and Taylor along for the 1989 tour and now it is our tradition to attend at least one concert in every tour that Taylor Swift goes on. If you are not a Taylor Swift fan, then you have no idea what in the heck I am talking about.
We definitely had more fun than anyone else in our section and knew the words to every song. The 12 year olds around us were appalled and it was a blast to watch the shock on their face’s.
The other piece that made this trip so enchanting was the city that we were in.
Chicago is freakin’ awesome. They are not lying when they say it is a cleaner New York City. It is so easy to get around, doesn’t take 45 min to go 1 mile, and it feels safe in most every place we went. It wasn’t over crowded and it didn’t smell like pee. So that’s a plus.
We didn’t get a chance to do the Sky Deck or go to any rooftops because the weather was overcast but we didn’t let that stop us from having a good time!
I made a list of few things that we did since a few of them are the Chicago staples.
- The Bean – This is the most popular tourist spot in the city. I don’t entirely understand why it is there but it makes for an awesome photo opp. It’s located in Millennium Park and is a close walk to other sight seeing areas.
- Chicago River – We took the classic Chicago River picture and the view was incredible. We had planned to go kayaking on the river but th e weather was not in our favor. I highly suggest you do it if the weather permits!
- Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave) – SHOPPING. My weakness… we walked this street of shops both Friday and Saturday and my bank account got quite the workout.
- Soldier Field – There are a few museums that are located near the field as well and there are breathtaking views.
- Wrigley Field – The Cubs were on the road when we were in town but we walked by and checked out the famous ballpark.
- Lou Malnati’s Deep Dish Pizza – Probably the best pizza I’ve ever had. I’ve never had deep dish pizza but it was life changing. We got the “Lou” pizza. I highly recommend.
There is SO much to do in Chicago and I was only in town for a brief time. I mostly focused on the quality time with the people I went with but it was an awesome city. I could definitely see myself living there… or visiting again very soon. 🙂
Make it a great day!
