I turned 50 in September 2021. My gift to myself was a trip to Chicago. I took the train from Cincinnati and spent a week in the Windy City. I thought I’d share my pics with you. You can also visit my podcast, Tourist in Your Town, to hear more about the food and the fun.

Navy Pier

I spent some time at Navy Pier. It was during the day and out of season, so there weren’t very many people. Also, lots of stuff was closed.

I took the architecture tour by boat. I made sure to take the last tour of the day so I would catch the sunset and some after dark images. If you have the opportunity, do it! It was completely worth it. They give you a great history on many of the buildings.

Cloud Gate

Yes, of course, I visited Cloud Gate (The Bean).
