After this whirlwind of a weekend my brief visit to Chicago had come to an end. I was sad, as I always am, to leave this beautiful city and all it has to offer. Just as I promised, I taught my brother all there was to love about and in Chicago and his love now also knows no bounds. Chicago will do that to you. Even if you don’t know what you are in for you will still end up having the time of your life. If you don’t, you are doing it wrong!!
These are the items that still remain on my to do list:
· Original Playboy Mansion;
· Home Alone House;
· Jane Addams Hull House Museum;
· Robie House by Frank Lloyd Wright;
· Hemingway Museum/ The Ernest Hemingway Birth Place;
· Wrigley Field;
· Gino’s East;
· RPM Steak; and
· Eli’s Cheesecake.
Most recently I read up about Underwater Safaris a company in Chicago that teaches snorkeling and scuba diving for those who want to dive into Lake Michigan. For those willing to dive in, there is a shipwreck that is quite popular with local divers. I have yet to hit the beaches in Chicago but a snorkeling adventure would be an ideal afternoon for me sometime in the future.
Finally I will need to spend a proper full day at The Field Museum so that I can see past Sue and her fellow prehistoric creatures.
Don’t let this seeming small list fool you. There are things that I haven’t discovered yet that will be added and treasures I long to relive again.
I now walk around with pride displaying my love for Chicago on my finger! This unique piece of art was created by Shekhtwoman, which you can find on the last link below. These rings and other jewelry are a great way to keep the places you love close to your heart.
In the meantime I will continue to build onto my next trip’s itinerary.
