Despite living in St. Louis for most of my life I had never made it up to to Windy City. Now that I’m in Lafayette for grad school and it’s only 2 hours there’s no excuse. And my aunt Sharon offered to take me!
First we went to Shedd Aquarium. Are you surprised? I’ve got to get my animal fix in. We saw all of animals there and saw the aquatic show. The reef exhibits reminded me of Fiji and the dolphins reminded me of New Zealand.
All the cichlid fish reminded me of biology classes.
My favorite animals were probably the beluga, they are impressive!
Once done we went to Gino’s for real Chicago deep dish. So much cheese! Then up to the John Hancock Observatory (now 360 Chicago) for beautiful night views while sipping a cocktail.
Sunday we woke up and went on an Architectural River Cruise. It was beautiful! Perfect weather. Lots of learning and information. Perfect way to end the weekend! I really enjoyed getting to spend time with my Aunt Sharon as well. It was great!
Now for just a few pics from the tour:
