Bye Bye Chicago

My Chicago getaway has almost come to an end and I must say it has been a dream trip that I am sad to see come to an end. We have tried to squeeze in as much shopping (which is ridiculous, in a good way!, dining, and sightseeing as possible in the few days we've been here.

This picture shows my street view looking towards the top of the John Hancock building, which I was a bit nervous about traveling to the top of. Everyone we talked to said this was a must sight to see, so I knew there was no backing out despite my fear of heights.

Once we reached the 95th floor of this building, I was relieved and in awe of the view. It was stunning how far you could see and we enjoyed a cocktail at the Signature Room while resting up from a busy day of shopping til we dropped!!

A more in depth picture blog of this wonderful city to come once we are safely back home. This is a place I know we will definitely be visiting again.

Have you ever been to Chicago? What did you think and what were your favorite sights to see??

I live in Chicago & my in-laws live on the 88th floor of the Hancock building. :) Seems like you were here when we are having unusually nice weather for this time of year! Hope you enjoyed your stay, I just love this city!

Love that you had a nice getaway! I've been to Chicago a few times - love the waterfront area. You should come to Toronto for a getaway sometime ;-)

@Stephanie- I had no idea that people even lived in that building?? How cool! The weather was super nice from what we had heard it was usually like in the month of December. We thoroughly enjoy it, thanks for the comment!
@Michelle- funny you should say that, bc we were debating Canada for a while there for Christmas- so your area could be next year!!
