How to Plan a Relaxing Chicago Staycation

How to Plan a Relaxing Chicago Staycation - Echo Limousine

Many Americans pay big bucks to visit the Windy City, but Chicago residents don’t need a vacation to explore their own backyard! Any local resident looking for a vacation without all the extra hassle and expense can take advantage of these ideas for a relaxing Chicago staycation.

Explore Like a Tourist…

It doesn’t matter how long someone has lived in Chicagoland—there are always new sites to explore and attractions to visit. The Chicago Architecture Center, Odyssey Chicago River Cruises, and the Chicago Blues Experience are all brand-new and offer locals and tourists alike a new view of the Windy City.

…With a Discount

Tourist attractions aren’t always cheap, but locals know that one of the best ways to experience them on a budget is through the Go Chicago Card. They offer discounted admission of up to 25 percent to small and large attractions in Chicago (with over 30 attractions to choose from!). The Go Chicago Card can be purchased online and accessed from a smartphone, with no tickets or printing necessary. They’re great for out-of-towners too!

Get Pampered

Chicago is home to world-class spas that offer a truly relaxing experience for those who love to be pampered. The Chuan Spa at The Langham or The Peninsula Spa at The Peninsula Chicago offers blissful facials, massages, and a host of other treatments in tranquil environments, sure to help even the most stressed Chicagoan unwind.

Eat Up!

What’s a vacation—or staycation, in this case—without indulging in the local cuisine? Chicago’s world-class restaurants, boasting innovative dishes made from the freshest local ingredients, impressive skyline views, and some of the most talented chefs in the world, offer something for everyone. Grab a romantic dinner and dessert at Riva or Allium, or restaurant-hop across the suburbs to try one dish, like an appetizer, per locale.
