When in Chicago…

Eat a Chicago Dog!

It was beautiful during my most recent trip to Chicago! Last year I got caught in a little bit of snow.

Lake Michigan has a thin covering of ice in some areas, with the sun slowing melting it away.

 

I had been down to the Navy Pier area before but wasn’t aware of the small park near the entrance. On the water here, there was a thick snow/ice build up. Lots of owners walking their dogs which made for some fun dog watching.

On my first trip to Chicago a number of years ago, I was able to go to a Cubs game in the historic Wrigley Field. As a solo traveler I feel as though my ears are always open to what others are saying, which I guess could also be called eavesdropping… In this case, and most times, it provided me with a unique opportunity so I hopped on the ‘L’ and headed up to to Wrigley. It’s definitely not a new stadium but it has historic charm.
