Thinking about travelling to Canada? Stop right there. Thank God we caught you just in time! You’re one of the lucky ones. Before you make any hasty decisions, you should really consider these 12 well thought-out reasons NOT to go. But if crowd-surfing, partying at festivals, eating some of the best food, drinking at cool bars, paragliding over spectacular views and soaking up sunshine are your thing then sure, go for it!
Prepare yourself Canada isn’t great…
1. Canada is always cold. Always.
It’s only natural that a trip to Chicago will have you make like Bueller, and take a day off to explore the heart of downtown. From jazz clubs to art institutes, there is something truly captivating about the Loop. However, the windy City is much more than skyscrapers, deep dish pizza and Grant Park. If you are after something beyond-the-norm, then hop on the El train and hit up some off our favourite spot off the beaten track.
1. For foodies and beer lovers: Lincoln Square
Only half-hour ride from downtown Chicago; Lincoln Square is one trendy place. An Old world heritage meets modern charm, with smatterings of its old German roots, the neighbourhood is an eclectic enclave that’s boasts an array of restaurants, bars and boutiques. For a mean pilsner head to Huettenbar and then straight onto Gene’s Sausage Shop. Finish your evening at the Old Town School of Folk Music for some live entertainment.
