Airbnb guests are a great excuse to go take a free vacay!!!

Last week I booked some Airbnb guests at the Indy Zen Den and used the time to go visit some friends in Chicago.

I hadn’t been back to Chi-town in years! It’s only a 3 hour drive from Indianapolis so I figured, why not?!

Along the way, I just had to soak up a piece of history, so I stopped in Lafayette, IN where the original Purdue University-Hoosiers come from.  Cute houses and spring flowers lined the streets, along with the cutest main street and state capitol.

I booked an incredible Airbnb apartment in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast with some referral credit that I had from Airbnb. (learn what this is) I went restaurant hopping in the rain with a friend and ended up here at the famous Carmines off State Street. The next morning I took a walk down the street to the famous Drake Hotel and ate breakfast there.

The next day, my friend drove us up Lake Shore Drive to Lake Forest where we went on our own architectural gem adventure as per an article we saw in Architectural Digest:
1. Market Square and first ever outdoor planned mall designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw
2. Lunch at the Deer Path Inn (where I ate most delicious handmade ravioli I’ve ever had)
3. David Adler’s mansion
4. Lake Forest Library with giant oak doorways and a domed rotunda

The day after that, I was leaving what I call Sun-Shy-town and happened to chuckle as I caught these photos of the sun finally emerging just when I drove out of Chicago which borders Indiana.

All in all it was a refreshing weekend getaway. Traveling is healthy!
