This past weekend, my friend & I went on a girls trip to Chicago. I took the train up from here, and she took the train down from Milwaukee. We arrived early Friday afternoon, and left late Sunday afternoon.
After checking into our hotel on Friday, we went to Millenium Park, Buckingham Fountain and the Willis (Sears) Tower.
The "bean" at Millenium Park:

At the top of the Willis Tower:
At the top of the Willis Tower, they've installed 4 glass boxes that go out over the side of the building that you can go out on. They were freaky, but so fun!:
On Saturday, we went to Wrigleyville (the area around Wrigley Field with bars, restaurants, etc.) because the Cardinals were in town playing the Cubs, and we're both Cardinals fans. We found a spot at one of the restaurants and watched most of the game.
It was really weird being at Wrigley Field, and I felt like a big huge traitor!
Saturday night we went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory that's at the base of the Hancock Building.
Sunday we went on a 90 minute combined river & lake boat tour. It's something I highly recommend to anyone going to Chicago! I have tons of pictures from it, but will only share a few!

Thanks for looking!!!
