We just got back from a whirlwind vacation spanning four states in 15 or so days. We ended our trip in Chicago, and I already can't wait to go back (what a great city!). We stayed at the awesome Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, located directly across the street from Millennium Park (I shared some shots of the hotel above - it's gorgeous! - but the real highlight was the incredible staff).
In our short time in the city, we managed to squeeze in an architectural river cruise, Millennium Park, a visit to the Art Institute (that's Hannah painting in their kids' area above), a ball game at Wrigley field, and plenty of good food and beer (the pizza was from Pizano's and the ramen was from Noodles by Takashi Yagihasi). We were happy to find so many kid-friendly tourist attractions (thank goodness for Crown Fountain!), but Adam and I would love to come back as a couple to experience some nightlife and see more of the city. We'll be back, Chicago!
