Chicago is a great city. Last week I visited for the very first time, and had a great mini trip. Of course, pretty much the entire nation was suffering from record breaking heat and Chicago was right smack in the middle of that heat wave. I’m no stranger to hot weather, but my only complaint about it in Chicago is the HUMIDITY. Blech! But once I succumbed to the fact that I would spend the entire time glistening with my hair piled on top of my head, I was good to go.
So let’s go…
My friends live in the neighborhood of Lincoln Park. It is just a few blocks from downtown, but has a great neighborhood feel with tree-lined streets of historic houses.
The neighborhood is in walking distance to Lake Michigan which is enormous.
The Biograph (where John Dillinger was shot and killed) resides in Lincoln Park as well.
On my first full day in the city, we attended a Cubs game at Wrigley Field.
The Cubs played the Astros. It didn’t really concern me who won, but it was fun to be there when the Cub’s won 4-2. I enjoyed seeing the bleacher seats atop buildings that overlooked the stadium.
I took so many pictures so I’ll share more in my next post.
