I’m planning a little getaway soon and am trying to decide between D.C. and Chicago. I’ve never been to either place, but both sound like they have just enough to see on a quiet long weekend. So I’ve been trying to cure my indecisiveness by trolling Instagram all evening for photos of the two cities:
If I make it to D.C., I’ll have missed the cherry blossoms, which peaked this weekend. But paddle-boating across the Tidal Pond sounds like a good consolation prize..
Or, if the weather is good, there’s the promise of long walks by the water’s edge at Chicago’s Riverwalk.
Both cities have must-visit local fare, like the original Georgetown Cupcakes in D.C..

Or, Chicago-style deep-dish pizza at Gino’s East.

There’s no shortage of art in all 19 of the Smithsonian’s free museums, including The National Gallery of Art..

But, Chicago’s got its own eye candy, like this stunning dome at the Cultural Center.

Have you been to either city? Suggestions would be highly appreciated!
