I hadn’t been to Chicago since I was ten maybe? And at age ten in that city the highlight is only ever the American Girl Store. This time, there were plenty of other must sees on my list.
I was headed out for a Model United Nations Conference but flew out a few days earlier. Kate visited Utah last March and it was my turn to see her home for the past four years. We spent the evening and first morning in the town of Evanston (Northwestern University) and took the train into the city for the evening.
Have you ever been to Chicago? If not, its a must. I fell in love with the city. The architecture is varied and aesthetic while the size is so much more manageable than New York. It reminded me of Boston, without the New England charm.
