Winter can be a lovely time of year for residents of our Chicago apartments with the snow, the many events and festivals and the ice skating in Millennium Park. However, sometimes it’s nice just to get away and experience a different part of the world and a different culture. Fortunately, there are a number of affordable destinations to consider while making your vacation plans for 2018.
Where to Go on Vacation in 2018
Though less publicized than neighboring Costa Rica, Guatemala has many of the same features at a fraction of the price. This Central American country offers tropical rain forests, Mayan ruins, inexpensive and delicious food, and a fascinating culture. Three-star hotels in Guatemala can be found for less than $20/night and Airbnbs are even less.
Located on the northwest corner of Africa, Morocco offers a unique blend of architecture, arts and crafts, food and natural beauty. More hotels are less than $20/night and you can eat like a king for a few dollars a day.
This small European country along the Adriatic Sea shares a border with Greece and is just a short ferry ride from the east coast of Italy. Visitors can savor the diverse Albania cuisine, tour castles and wander Adriatic beaches. Accommodations are surprisingly affordable, with clean, convenient hotel rooms to be had for under $25/night.
Living in Chicago’s River North neighborhood
Chicago’s River North neighborhood is located just north of the Loop, across the Chicago River, and just west of the city’s Magnificent Mile shopping and dining district. The neighborhood is noted for its many warehouses and industrial buildings that have been converted into stylish condominiums and apartments. River North is also home to a diverse collection of art galleries, ethnic restaurants, fashion and home decor boutiques and antique stores. River North is one of Chicago’s favorite places to be after dark, with a varied selection of jazz clubs, concert venues, wine bars and dance clubs. River North Park apartment residents can spend time outdoors (without the yard maintenance) in one of the neighborhood’s many city parks, several of which abut the river.
