Money Magazine recently named Chicago as one of The 20 Best Places To Go In 2018, falling 6th on a list of 20. Editors of the magazine analyzed cost, year-over year trends, and customer satisfaction of each city using data points from dozens of sources. The winners aren’t the cheapest or most luxurious destinations, rather they’re where “quality, cost, and value come together to provide a terrific travel experience.”

As Chicago is home for many of us, we couldn’t agree more with this exciting feature. In celebration, we're rounding up where to stay, eat, and explore in Chicago this spring!

Stay: We're counting down the days until Zapwater client, Hotel Zachary, opens its doors in just a few short days! Just in time for baseball season, the hotel is located directly across the street from famous, Wrigley Field, and features a vibrant, modern aesthetic with a unique neighborhood character. Its design is also inspired by the work of world-renowned Wrigley Field architect and Chicagoan, Zachary Taylor Davis. 

Eat: Chicago's Spiaggia has remained a “must-dine” destination for locals and visitors alike for many years. Visitors have included Hollywood’s elite, musicians, presidents and international leaders, proving to be an international hot spot. Most recently, Executive Chef Joe Flamm was named Bravo TV’s latest Top Chef and is excited to bring his new experiences to Spiaggia’s kitchen. Now is the time to visit!

Explore: Experience Chicago like never before 1,353 feet in the air. Skydeck Chicago features The Ledge, four glass boxes that extend 4.3 feet out, providing unique city views and a hint of adrenaline. Visit Willis Tower, the second tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, to enjoy this unique city experience.
