Sunday, our second day in Chicago, began perfectly. Waking up in the hotel was a lot better than pulling an all nighter to travel. We got ready, went downstairs to get breakfast, and walked over to Navy Pier to catch the double-decker trolley. The 2 hour tour around the city gave us a much needed break for our feet.
Trump Tower, 2nd tallest building in the U.S. (it’s the one that blends in with the sky)
Water Tower – one of the only buildings that survived the fire
Buckingham Fountain, planes from the air show
Aqua, Building of the Year in the U.S. in 2009
Start of Route 66
Willis (Sears) Tower, tallest building in the western hemisphere
Nachos from Margaritaville
Best margarita I’ve ever had
The Art Institute of Chicago – we went on the last day to see the impressionist exhibit
I had an amazing time, and I’m already excited to go back at some point. I’ll have to start saving now!
