A whole lot of people love using the photo app Instagram. And, as it turns out, a lot of people also love the Midwestern city of Chicago.

So, since I just spent the past 4 days Instagram-ing it up in the Windy City, I figured I'd share some of my favorite shots with you.

The sights:

Chicago is known for a few iconic sights — Willis Tower, The Bean, Marina City… And we saw them all this weekend.

The food:

Since I was showing two Australians around Chicago for the weekend, I had to make sure to introduce them to as much American food as possible. Such as:

Gino's East, Chicago
