Travel Diary: Chicago

May 27, 2014

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a restful and sunny long weekend. I spent mine eating, museum going, and shopping my way through Chicago. Here are a few snapshots:

Views from an architectural boat tour. 

One of the many Monets at the Chicago Art Institute. 

View from the top of the John Hancock--looking tropical!

We had absolutely perfect weather all weekend. Chicago in May = gorgeous!

Red velvet "wonuts" (waffle donuts) from Waffle Cafe. You all know how much I love a good donut, so it's always fun to try the latest and greatest within the donut community ;)

The whole city was in bloom, there were tulips everywhere!

We rented bikes and biked along Lake Michigan. It was so much fun, and this view was ah-mazing.

People watching on Michigan Ave.

A few other highlights: 
-Seeing Motown the Musical. The music was so good. 
-Seeing the Obamas house.
-Seeing one of the Apollo rockets that landed on the moon at the museum of science and industry. 

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new outfit post, and if you haven't already, be sure to enter the ASOS giveaway!

  4. These pictures are great!

    You should checkout Chicago's new iphone app called 312Go. It's a "Smart Guide" which means it tracks your location and then the guides talk to you..sharing history and stories about the places you pass and sights that you see.

    Here's a video simulation:

    As you can see in the video, just start the app and the guides and technology will take care of the rest..
