I will say my husband was totally fine hanging around Glenview everyday though
My husband and I recently went on a small trip to celebrate our one year anniversary. We had never been to Chicago before and decided to fly there. I am not a big city girl though. I really like to be quiet and have grass around me. My husband wanted to do a bunch of things in the city. It made sense to book an accommodation near the city, but not in it. I settled on an airbnb in Glenview Illinois. It is less than 30 minutes to drive into Chicago. The airbnb I found was gorgeous, spacious and had a great view. We chose to visit during the winter months so I got to experience snow. It was nice getting snow and cold but having quality heating in the rental house. The place came with a wood burning fireplace and heated flooring. Since my husband and I live down south we agreed to keep both heaters running full steam ahead. The wood burning fireplace added a great smell and look to the place. The heated flooring felt great when we went to bed at night. During the days there my husband and I saw a Chicago Blackhawks hockey game, went to the ballet and did some shopping in the city. I will say my husband was totally fine hanging around Glenview everyday though. He was never in a rush to get to the city. We loved the peace and quiet in our small town. We enjoyed having a yard to ourselves and that we could walk to the local businesses and feel safe.
