Must-See & Do:

Starbucks Chicago Roastery building

  • First Stop: A jolt of java for man, a puppuccino for man’s best friend – at  the multi-level Starbucks Chicago Roastery (shown above), the ultimate shrine to all things coffee. Stroll through the multi-story design with unique experiences on every level.

Eataly at The Shops at North Bridge

  • Next Stop: Give a dog a bone courtesy of lunch at Doc B’s at The Shops at North Bridge. Shop stores while your pup snacks at Nordstrom, APM Monaco and Optica, and don’t forget a doggy bag (for you) of Italian treats and maybe even a bottle of vino or two from Eataly (pictured above).

  • Final Stop: Stroll Chicago’s pet friendly Lakefront Trail, which spans 18 miles along the spectacular shore of Lake Michigan, connecting vibrant neighborhoods, expansive parks, popular beaches, and famous attractions like Navy Pier and Soldier Field.
