Trip Report CHICAGO 7/31 - 8/3

Jump to last reply

Thanks to posters for help with planning.

First time in Chicago. Flew into Midway & took train to The James Hotel.

Highlights: Millennium Park, Chicago Architecture River Cruise, Food and Cultural Walking Tour.

Many good meals: Purple Pig (Michigan Ave) & Topo Gigio (Old Town). Drinks and appetizers at The Signature Room were well worth the price. What a view and exciting vibe! Even the ladies restroom has a large window with a view.

Loved walking around the city. My foot held up OK for those of you that remember my concern with walking. Trains, and especially buses on Michigan Ave, were frequent and convenient as others had advised me.

Information center at Cultural Center is terrific. I would tell others to stop there early and make plans with their help. It is large, air conditioned, with comfortable seating and restrooms. Very easy to hang out for awhile and get your bearings. The building itself is historic and worth touring. Just missed a free Greeter Tour. Instead the woman at the desk took us around the building, pointing out what to do at Millennium Park, and then gave us an informal tour of downtown on her way home. That's impressive and the way we felt about our entire time in Chicago. People are friendly and proud of their city.
