Last Wednesday my mom and I traveled up to Chicago to meet my dad who had driven up earlier that week because of work. We took the train, which neither of us had ever done before! In this post I am going to walk you through our first afternoon there!
We went to our hotel first and this was the view from our room!
After my mom and I spent the afternoon shopping at TJ Maxx, H&M, and Nordstrom Rack, we went to dinner at Grand Lux Cafe. The bread was delicious!
I tried the fettuccine alfredo and it was SO GOOD.
After dinner we walked over to Navy Pier to walk around and watch the fireworks.
The Ferris wheel looked like fun, but it was really cold when we went. I was wearing a pullover and long pants and I was still shivering!
There was a good view of the city from Navy Pier!
Notice how blurry the flags are? There is a reason it is called the Windy City…
For some reason I really liked this tower!
Lastly, here is a view of the city and the aftermath of the sunset! Check back tomorrow to read about my 2nd and 3rd day!
