I found a great deal on this hotel at Hotels.com. The hotel is literally right off of the Magnificent Mile (a famous street for shopping and dining). The woman who checked us in was not that friendly, but she was efficient, so we made it up to the room quickly. I was happy to see that we were placed on a higher floor (32!) with a fantastic view of the city. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).

Chicago Souvenirs: 15 Distinct Local Products to Bring Home

One of the most fascinating cities in the U.S., if not the whole world, Chicago has no shortage of things closely associated with it, often due to their direct origin (blues, gangstership, etc.), so one might literally be spoiled for choice as to what to choose as a "piece" of Chicago to...
