Chicago in February

Oh, the life of a rambling college professor.  Chris has already been to several conferences since December: New York once, New York again, and now Chicago. Well, he’s not going to have all the fun without me!  I’m planning to tag along to Chicago this time.  It’s one of my favorite cities, and even though we’ll only be there 3 days, I plan to make the most of it.  Here’s what I’ve got in mind:

Take this to get there…

Northern Indiana Commuter Train

Stay here

Blackstone Hotel by Marriott

Eat here

Everest Restaurant

And visit one of these…

Shedd Aquarium

Museum of Science and Industry

The Field Museum

My sister-in-law, Nicki, and her boyfriend Preston are planning to come during that same time frame and hang out with us.  I’m looking forward to meeting Preston and being able to spend some time with family.  Chicago’s such a fun city, and I always have a great time whenever I visit.  I’m only sad that we can’t stay longer!

    This all makes me miss Chicago so much! I love the Shedd aquarium and as a kid I could not get enough of the museum of science and industry. I love the coal mine, the baby chicks, and the doll house. When I went back a few years ago, though, everything seemed so much smaller than I’d remembered…

    I vote for the Museum of Science & Industry– we went there last fall and it was so fun! My childhood fave.
