I thought I'd share our itinerary and pictures of our trip. Overall, I though Chicago was an excellent place to travel to and I highly recommend checking it out.
Day 1:Museum of Science and Industry - by far our favorite museum of the trip. Lots of cool things for kids and adults.
Day 2:Shedd Aquarium - another favorite. We just love looking at all the different kinds of fish and aquatic life. We're like little kids at places like this.
Day 3:Farmer's Market in Lincoln Park - this was a farmer's market that I wish I had in my backyard. It's really something for the locals, but it was neat to check out. A lot of vendors had samples and delicious goodies for sale.
Millennium Park/The Bean - The Bean is one of the coolest things in the city. I loved taking all kinds of pictures with it.
Day 4:Gay Pride Parade - unbeknown to us, we came to town during the Gay Pride Festival weekend. The parade came right through where we were staying and we were able to watch it from the balcony. It was very neat.
Day 5:The Field Museum - this museum was just ok for us. We're not big into the natural history stuff as much. Although, they do have some cool dinosaur exhibits.
Day 6:Art Institute - this museum is huge. You could spend hours and hours. We prioritized and only checked out a couple of the wings and found some of the most famous pieces.
