It’s time to start planning that mid-summer vacation. Why not try something besides the beach this year? The Taste of Chicago is one of the top food festivals in the Windy City, and it has inspired similar events all over the United States. Beginning the Friday before the 4th of July, this popular event takes over Grant Park for 10 days. As the park is adjacent to Michigan Avenue, you can try many of the city’s most famous attractions within walking distance. However, the Taste of Chicago will be the family highlight of the trip.
Food is the Ambassador of Chicago Culture
Whether it’s a big slice of Chicago-style pizza for the kids, or some Italian beef and a beer for Dad, it is the food that introduces the world to the diverse cultures of this Midwestern city. Many ethnic groups have settled in the city, so the festival will have something for everyone. Even though you’re there to get to know the food, make sure you pick a great luxury hotel Chicago style for your family. It doesn’t have to be unreasonably priced. Whether you love the old world European atmosphere or you want something slick and modern, like a Trump property, you’ll find excellent service and accommodations throughout the city. Reward yourself with a chance to immerse the family in the city’s famous architecture.
More to the Taste of Chicago Than Food
No great festival would survive without amazing music and winning attractions for the kids. Taste of Chicago is no different. Mom and Dad can rock out to great acts, like Santana, and the kids can get their thrills on the Ferris wheel. Leave time to explore the Art Institute and the Sears Tower. The festival is right on Michigan Avenue, so the city’s iconic landmarks are a must. When all the food, fun and sightseeing are over, enjoy a relaxing family night in your Chicago luxury hotel with perfectly prepared room service.
