On the Skydeck (103rd floor) of Willis/Sears Tower!
Amazing views from the Skydeck! The famous John Hancock building is in the middle back (tall black building).
Walking around Magnificent Mile. Is that American flag beautiful, or what??
Conference happy hour time in the hotel. We stayed at the Hilton on South Michigan and it was very nice!
Divvy bikes- perfect for riding around downtown!
Charles Ray sculpture near the Art Institute
Giordano's is a must if you visit Chicago! They had the best pizza- ever!!
I hope you are having a great week! I had the most amazing week in Chicago with one of my best friends of sixteen years. His company had a nationwide conference in Chicago and he invited me to tag along, so of course I said yes. He has lived in Portland for the last five years, so I jump on any chance to get together. He mostly worked and I mostly played. I did a lot of touristy things during the day and at night, we hit the town. We went all over the place and ate and shopped our way through the city. :-)
Speaking of shopping, I love Chicago shopping!! I loved walking up and down Michigan Avenue, State Street and the Magnificent Mile and stopping in all the shops. I was so excited the first day that I ended up walking about twelve miles- only to gain it all back from all that Chicago pizza! Lol!
I will post more pics later this week and share more of my favorite restaurants and places to explore. I would also love to hear your fave places because I definitely plan on going back!
