A Visit to Chicago

 

My husband, my daughter, and I just blew in from the windy city. Our annual trip to Chicago coincided with the beginning of the Christmas season. For one day, and one night, the three of us ate, drank, and were merry in one of our favorite cities. Spirits were high, and the weather was unseasonably warm. It was a perfect day to be caught up in the sea of people bobbing along the streets and sidewalks.

Visiting a big city is the ultimate good time. There are museums, parks, sports teams, fabulous restaurants, unusual architecture, and in Chicago, The Magnificent Mile. Energy and excitement ooze from everywhere. If you do nothing else other than walk the city streets, it’s an experience not to be missed.

“Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin’ town

   Chicago, Chicago, I’ll show you around…”

During the day…

 At night…
