A Trip to CHI Town

It’s hard to believe, but it’s already been a week since we went to Chicago for New Years. Luckily we went last week, and not this week or I don’t think I would have been brave enough to venture outside. Last year we spent New Years Eve at home, which was nice, but this year we wanted to do something more exciting. We decided we’d take a trip to Chicago, since neither of us had been there before and catch up with some of Darren’s friends. We drove in on Monday, spent Tuesday touring the city and drove back home on Wednesday. It was a short trip, but it was nice to get a mini vacation in after the holidays. The only downside was that it was freezing! Remind me to make my next visit to Chicago during a warmer season.

Buses, trains or walking. Something I'm definitely not used to

And of course, a visit to the Bean!

We also visited a bunch of restaurants/bars.

  • Yokozuna
  • Bar Toma
  • The Signature Lounge (John Hancock Center)
  • Harry Caray’s Tavern
  • Mullen’s Bar & Grill
  • Sluggers
  • Rock Bottom Restaurant &  Brewery

We barely touched the surface of Chicago, but I know we’ll be back again to explore such a great city!

 

Have you been to Chicago? What was your favorite thing to see/visit?
