Chicago is an amazing city. Home of Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs brings many tourists into Chicago’s O’Hare airport every year for fun in the summer. Michigan Avenue and Rush Streets, “The Magnificent Mile,” offer some of the hippest bars and best food venues. From Chicago Dogs on the street corner to a Deep Dish with sausage at Lou Malnatis Pizzeria, The Windy City offers many treats to its visitors. Sometimes people not used to city life can feel overwhelmed and a day trip is the best way to put your chi back in alignment. Nothing better than a relaxing motor coach ride to tour and taste some craft beers at Wisconsin’s Milwaukee Breweries.
