Personal Post: anniversary trip to chicago

by | Oct 24, 2014 | Personal Life

Chicago_Travel_Photography_Navy_Pier_MuseumFall is our busiest time of year, so sneaking away for a bit over our anniversary can be a challenge as it lands right in mid-October.  This year we decided to plan just a mini-getaway for a couple days to Chicgao to celebrate three years together.  Despite only have a few days, we fit in a lot: a few museums, an opera, millennium park, an architectural riverboat tour, a piano bar, and the thing I’d been waiting for since I was a child: Navy Pier.  I have been to Chicago many times, but it has never been in the plans to make it to Navy Pier to ride “the wheel”.  I am completely fascinated by the story of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and it seemed of great importance for me to ride the ferris wheel in the city that created it.  Although our trip was a rainy one, our day at Navy Pier gave us good weather and we were able to ride the 150 foot ferris wheel and look out across the city skyline.

We took the train into Chicago and stayed at the Sheraton Riverfront Hotel, which was wonderful because everything was in walking distance – we had beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.  And we pretty much ate our way through the city – German beer flights, deep dish pizza, Chicago-style hotdogs, and a special anniversary dinner on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Building.  It was just enough to tide me over to our next travel adventure, and a wonderful way to celebrate three years together. 🙂
