Last year in October we took a quick trip to Chicago and tried to cram in as much of the city as we could!
We stayed at the McCormick Place Convention Center.
When we visited it was a day or two after Steve Jobs passed away. Outside of the apple store were crowds of people leaving letters, apples, post-its, and lighting candles in his memory.
After a morning full of walking our next stop was pretty SWEET…..you guessed it, HERSHEY’S!
Navy Pier was Next during German/ Oktober Fest!
My husband Mingling
A message every language should agree on!
The famous Ferris Wheel
At the top of the Ferris Wheel…..This explains the windy city name…..Not where you want to be rocking
I tried to tell him they don’t need cleaned
Making friends at Leggo Land
WE EARNED DINNER with all of that walking!
Everyone knows Chicago pizza as the Deep Dish and every person you ask who has been will recommend a different pizza place as their favorite, you have to start somewhere so we chose Giordano’s
WARNING you will be waiting…..most likely outside with crowds of others, I think the longer the wait means the better the taste
The “waiting” room.
SO WORTH IT….
Another Chicago favorite….Garretts popcorn which I hear also typically has a LONG wait!
