Going to BlogHer? What to Do In Chicago With Kids

In just over a week, I'll be at the BlogHer conference in Chicago with baby Eilan to attend the BlogHer conference. I am looking forward to meeting 1,000 other powerful, interesting women who express themselves through their blogs, and I'm especially excited to be co-hosting the Travel Blog Exchange '09 meetup after BlogHer.

The big kids will stay home with dad this time, but we were lucky to visit Chicago together last summer to build our kid-friendly guide to Chicago. Our "½-day outings" are perfect for printing out and taking with you. Each day trip gives you a single piece of paper to carry, complete with a map, things to do, and places to eat.

½ day outings near the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers:
½ day trip: Chicago's Near North Side
½ day trip: Millennium Park With Kids
½ day trip: The Loop With Kids

I am always excited about talking to other moms who are interested in travel and I have some truly useful swag to give away, so catch me between sessions! I'll be the one with the baby sleeping in the sling and spitup on her shoulder.

    Oh so exciting. I'm actually going to be in Chicago the weekend of blogher but alas it was for a family visit. Thanks for sharing all your notes!

    Oh, goody, useful swag. I used up my duct tape from last year! LOL

    See you in Chicago. Thanks so much for putting on TBEX. You are amazing.

    I'll make sure to keep an eye out for you and Eilan, counting down the days.

    I was just in Chicago - my hometown! Don't forget to pay a visit to Lake Michigan. People don't think of Chicago as a beach town, but the sand and water there is glorious (you can see some pics on my blog from a few days ago). Have fun! And I am glad I found your site!
