A Visit to the Windy City

Back in 2014, my family and I took a trip to Chicago for my cousin’s wedding. My immediate family decided to drive the whole way, while all of my other family took a plane. Five people and one chocolate lab in one car for twenty hours do not go well together.

Upon arriving, we had a lot of free time to go explore a part of the country we had never been to. My dad travels a lot for his job, so he had been to Chicago quite frequently. He was able to tell us about all the main places we should visit, and acted as our tour guide.

The first place he took us was the very iconic sculpture, “The Bean”. The sculpture is located in the middle of the city and is a major tourist attraction. The massive 42 foot sculpture has been featured in many iconic movies over time. My dad wanted to make sure that we were able to see it for ourselves in person.

My family and I are huge baseball fans, so my dad thought it would be a great idea to take us to Wrigley Field. Even though we aren’t Cubs fans, we still thought it was really amazing to see the stadium in person. We would have went to a game, but it was off-season while we were there. Here’s a link to the official MLB website for Cubs fans to view all information pertaining to the Cubs: http://m.cubs.mlb.com/

Overall, my experience in Chicago was great. This was the farthest I had ever traveled away from home. The car ride was not fun, but the experience I had is one that I will never forget.
