My husband and I are looking to plan a trip next year for our 3rd wedding anniversary and are unsure where to go.
We'll be travelling from the UK in the last week in August for at least 10 nights but no more than 14. We won't be driving but have no problems walking (we did New York in January and didn't use any form of transport other than our feet)
We like shopping, history, architecture, live music.....basically we love city holidays.
We've been to Boston twice.....we got engaged there in December 2010 and went back for our honeymoon in August 2012, so Chicago would seem like the sensible choice as we've not been before. However, Boston is a very special place and is definately a home from home for us so we're finding it difficult to navigate away from there.
Can people please give me any info with regards to things to do in Chicago/safety/getting around etc? Also, any info from people who have been to both Boston and Chicago would be appreciated.
