Today’s travel post is dedicated to Northerly Island, a series of manmade island that offers beautiful strolling paths and a sweeping panoramic views of Chicago’s lakefront. Come stroll through wild prairie grasses with me as I talk about its creation and how it’s contributed to the blueprint of the Chicago flag!

Northerly Island was the created at the helm of Daniel H. Burnham, whose vision at that time was for a recreational parkland amassed with grandeur stretch of nature walks and spectacular view of the Windy City. Chosen as the site for Chicago’s 2nd World Fair called the “Century of Progress”, it made a lasting impression in Chicago history.

Those 4 stars on the Chicago flag? They represent 4 history-making ordeals in the Windy City– Fort Dearborn, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, and the Century of Progress Exposition of 1933–34!

Speaking of the weekend getaways, infused year-round with ecology and education central themes, alongside with a concrete trail for walking, a lagoon, and landscaped wildlife habitat, Northerly Island is definitely worth a visit post your week day 9-5s!

  • Thanks for such a great informative post, Lena! I think it’s amazing to explore our own cities; I often get lost in my everyday routine and forget how cool it is to be a tourist in your hometown.
    You look amazing in this casual outfit, btw! I wear pretty much the same thing on weekends:) Comfort is always my number one priority, lol.
    Have a great week ahead, beautiful!
