“Is it worth it? Lemme work it…”
NAME THAT SONG
Ok yea, Chicago was worth it. I wasn’t planning on going at first, but I was over on that side of the country and wanted to visit my cousin who has been living there for the past couple of years. Let’s just say Chicago>Boston.
I was only there for around 48 hours and arrived during the magic hour…
Taken from Museum Campus
Day Two: The next morning at Doughnut Vault. I opted for the classic glaze, so good and worth the hype.
Check out the great prices, very satisfied about that as well.
I heard about the Architectural Boat Tours from just about everyone, I sure am happy I listened and went on one. I went on this one.
Gorgeous skyline views
The building with no 90 degree angles
The Bean…meh. It’s bigger than I expected but what’s the point of taking a selfie in a dirty mirror. Cool art but a huge letdown. Seriously why is this a thing such a huge tourist attraction?
Spent 5 minutes at the Bean and an hour at the Chicago Cultural Center. I stumbled upon this gem when I thought I was “sneaking in” to their bathroom. Turns out it is a public space. Also, shout out to the random lady that saw me taking a snap of the foyer and forced me to climb to the upper floors. She was a volunteer tour guide and give me a quick run down on the space.
I spent the rest of the time ooo-ing and ahhing over all the tile work. I felt transported to Europe.
The violinist was a nice touch too.
Coffee break at Intelligentsia Coffee
View from John Hancock Center. You can go to the top and stop in for a drink, beware they are super overpriced. Also do yourself a favor and go to the ladies bathroom while you are up there…
Final Moment at John Hancock Center
Day Three: Morning in Lincoln Park.
At the Lincoln Park Zoo, which to be honest, was very meh.
The Original Pancake House – Normally I would go somewhere sehr kewl but this was by the zoo and I was starving.
