Our second day of our trip to Chicagoland was the one that is always the most exciting to me, because it was the day we took the train from Palatine into the city!
When we arrived downtown, we started walking east toward Millennium Park. Of course Bunny had to feed the pigeons along the way!
We visited the Bean:
There may have been less people in our selfie than in previous years, but they’ve all gotten so big, you still couldn’t see much behind us!
We walked down to the lakefront:
And Buckingham Fountain:
I never tire of visiting Chicago and noticing new things and seeing old favorites!
We dropped Bunny off at the Art Institute so she could see the new Van Gogh exhibit…here’s a look at a few of the pictures she took there:
Then we walked along the Chicago Riverwalk for the first time, where I got a great look at my “corn on the cob” buildings:
After we had taken in the sights there, we headed back up Michigan Avenue toward the Wrigley Building and the Plaza of the Americas, where I was surprised to find that the “Wings of Mexico” art installation we saw last year was still on display:
We stopped at Ghirardelli and shared a frozen hot chocolate:
After we collected Bunny, we headed to Marshall Field’s (sorry…Macy’s), where I was happy to see some references to the old store:
Saying goodbye to the city is never easy!
After we got, we moved some of our stuff into the third hotel room we had for the weekend, and then checked out some of the action at Combo Breaker, but we reserved Saturday for really participating…say tuned!
