While Bry was enjoying the Cubs game with his dad on Saturday, several of us took the opportunity on a beautiful sunny day to see some of downtown Chicago. What better way to do that than the Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Tour? Luckily, Bo recommended this tour as the best way to see downtown without doing miles and miles of walking.
It was a little chilly and windy…duh, it IS Chicago…but we did a similar tour of New York City several years ago and loved it, so we were psyched for this day. You can see everything and do it at your own speed, plus you get the feel of the city a little bit since you’re experiencing all of the sounds and smells as well as the sights.
We took a ton of photos, and wanted to share some of our favorites with you. Chicago: we’ll be back for more of you as soon as we can! We had a blast!
And, last but not least, you can’t talk about Chicago without talkin’ about ‘Da Bears’.
Towards the end of the tour, it got a little too chilly to ride on top of the bus so we had to go down below, which is why we have no photos of the Harbors or Navy Pier. We may have to go back this Summer to capture some of the activities down by the water.
We could see Bry again before he ships out and while there we could take another Double Decker Bus tour when it’s warm enough to stay on the top of the bus for the entire tour! We don’t mind looking like tourists!
And next time, we’ll make sure to take photos of all the infamous Chicago food! Chicago pizza, Chicago dogs, more pizza, beef sandwiches, more pizza, gyros…
We could go on, and on, and on about the food in Chicago!
