Denver Realtor: Chicago Trip Winter 2012

Denver Realtor: Helen and I took a brief excursion to Chicago while we were in Michigan. Below is a summary of our time in Chicago:

We started our day by walking to lunch at a French restaurant, Bistrot Zinc.

We tried the onion soup, which was a  new flavor to me. Combined with wine it was a perfect start to our vacation.

We then took a cab to Millennium Park which Helen said was silly since it was so close to our hotel.  I didn’t think a mile and a half was close in the cold and wind.

After Millennium Park we walked to Navy Pier.  It was a cold and windy walk but there were some amazing views of the city. Navy Pier Chicago | Denver Realtor

We finished our day with a walk down the magnificent mile, Michigan Ave.  I snapped this picture of my favorite city views on our way: the towering skyscrapers next to the river on our way.

And then some real deep dish pizza at Pizzeria Due.

The next day we made a trip to the Original Pancake House. I got the crepes and Helen got the pumpkin pancakes. It was amazing food.

Soldier Field | Denver RealtorAfter our trip to the Original Pancake House I had to see Soldier Field. Helen did not appreciate the value of this or recognize my sacrifice in not insisting on also viewing Wrigley Field.  Parking was impossible, we tried sneaking into the lot right next to the field and we were told to leave before we could even exit the car. We found a side street that accesses some of the parking lots of a nearby park and harbor, where Helen could stay in the car while I took a picture of myself.

We then drove to see the Museum of Science And Industry.  Helen and I chose to see this because of Yelp reviews. We were also considering seeing the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium. We did not take into consideration how kid friendly the Museum of Science And Industry was and that it was Winter break. Given this fact and that the coal mine and the tour of U-505 was sold out I think we would have chosen one of the other options.  That being said we really enjoyed the human body experience and seeing the German U-Boat from the outside.
