Ahhhhh, the Windy City. It’s definitely one of the most romantic cities on the continent. All the aphrodesiac-inducing shopping, the sparkling lights, the snuggle-worthy breezes — it’s no wonder couples choose this location for their honeymoon. Plus, there’s tons to do, from museums and gallery shows to view, live performances, to cuddly strolls through the town. No matter what you do, you’ll probably want to pack heavy, especially in the chillier months.
