Day One of Two in Chicago

All together we were in Chicago for 36 hours. My mom went to a conference there so I tagged along and we toured together on our first day in the Windy City. After getting off of the plane at 10:30 am, we took the train into the city from O’Hare. We pre-checked into our hotel, and walked down to the river to get some lunch (it’s around Noon by now.)

After walking by the river for a little bit (I still can’t believe the color of the river), we took a hop-on hop-off tour. On the tour, we saw the whole city. Here are a few of my favorite spots:

A friend told me about this sign, and I actually found it!

Holy Name Cathedral

After the tour, we used our tickets to go to the top of the Sears-Willis Tower and stand on the sky deck. It was Disney World-Esque, but we still enjoyed it.

To end our first day, we ate our first deep dish pizza. Lou Malnati’s came highly recommended. And it was delicious.
