Christmas time is my favorite time of year. It is also a super hectic time of year with parties to attend, gifts to buy and houses to decorate. It definitely has me daydreaming about taking a vacation to relax after all the hectic activities.
Gogobot makes it easy to plan the perfect vacation virtually!
Never heard of it? It is a social travel site that started in 2010. It also has the prestige of being named one of Time’s top sites of 2011 and winner of the 2010 Crunchie award for Best Design.
I’ll be traveling to Chicago next year for a mini-vacation/blog conference. I figured now is a great time to start checking out places to eat and things to do while visiting the city. I started by visiting the Gogobot Chicago Travel Guide page.
Of course, the first thing I looked for was a place a to stay. The top rated hotel, out of the 193 hotels listed on the Chicago hotel guide was the InterContinental Chicago. One of the really neat things about GogoBot is that readers share real photos of places around the city along with their reviews. This view of the city sold me on the hotel I was looking at.
With a place to sleep selected, I clicked over to search for some delicious food on the restaurants page.
This amazing dish, from the Purple Pig page, made it top on my list of places to visit.
Of course, a trip to Chicago isn’t complete without a deep dish pizza!
I started making a list of must see places and things to do but it just kept growing. So, I bookmarked the Things to Do page on GogoBot.
