Although my family has visited Chicago countless times, we have never ventured too far from Wrigley Field. So we decided to go to Chicago to act like tourists for a few days.
Old and new
Skyline from the Navy Pier
Can you see Michigan on the other side?
(already in our bellies)
Chicago River crossing
Frank Gehry amphitheater...
and pedestrian walkway to the Institute of Art
Riding the CTA:
We didn't even realize Chicago had a subway!
Sampling brews at Goose Island
Giordano's famous 'stuffed' pizza:
Ride the train to the dunes!
(if only you still could)
We started the next day right with Ann Sather's cinnamon rolls:
Roof bleachers on Waveland St.
On the way home we found an awesome brewery in Sawyer, MI:
Greenbush Brewing Co.
Then we swung by Saugatuck Brewing for one more round:
Their Neapolitan Milk Stout is so good!
What a great trip to Chicago!
