Spending 12 hours in Chicago, bookended by two overnight train rides… yeah, that was my weekend. There’s something very satisfying about taking a quick trip to a great place and being able to tell about it on Monday morning at work.
On this particular trip, I visited with my good friend Camden for the day as we popped around Downtown, Wrigleyville, and West Loop.
Along our fun-filled journey which included great food, craft brews and cocktails, I took some pictures in an effort to, once again, share the magnificence that is The Windy City. Chicago is, for me, one of the most beautiful cities, and as these photos will show, the city’s splendor and excitement is in abundant supply.
After an exhausting day of walking, eating and enjoying a few adult beverages (hey, it’s not like I was driving!) I boarded my Amtrak train and inflated my pillow for a long trip home. It was certainly a whirlwind through the Windy City, but I got to see a great friend and enjoy one of the greatest place in the country, all in a weekend. I was so impressed with Chicago’s continued growth and commitment to beautiful spaces that bring people together. It’s what keeps me coming back for a great time, every time.
