This has definitely been the summer of staycations for us & I’ve loved every second of it! Traveling with an active and curious baby has its challenges, especially on a flight, so anywhere that we can go locally and still feel like we’re on vacation is ideal for us right now. When the Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove reached out and asked if we wanted to come stay with them for a weekend, obviously I said “HECK YES!” It was only an hour drive for us and we truly did feel like we were somewhere else entirely! I’m a native Floridian and actually didn’t really know anything about Coconut Grove until spending a weekend there. Keep reading to see how we spent our weekend exploring the Mayfair and a little slice of Miami.
Chicago in a day. A nearly impossible task. With some determination and a big appetite, I made it happen.
Since time was of the essence, location was key. The Park Hyatt Chicago on the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave.) was our home for the weekend and I couldn’t have asked for more. Perfection! The view was everything. Our room was large with a bench at the window that overlooked the city and Lake Michigan. And any hotel that offers mid-day snacks and water, tea, and coffee is good in my book!
