Sweet Home Chicago

Chicago rocks! I lived so near it for most of life yet I am just now appreciating that fact.

Most people from the area I grew up in think of Chicago as the "Big Scary City", something to be avoided unless it's a class field trip or a Cubs game.

Truth is that Chicago is a nice place to visit. If you stay away from the seamy places you are quite safe as you explore the downtown/Loop area. The people are friendly and there's just so much to see and do, even for free.

Next time I get a chance, I want to spend at least 2 or 3 days there. Who's up for a trip?!?

Wow, you manage to get quite a lot in in the short time you actually got to spend there. Thanks for sharing it.
