My Kind of Town

I was very tempted by the Vlog Talk prompts this week maybe because I have been wanting to highlight my travels more.  When I started going through my pics, I realized I should start with the city I know the most because I visit it the most... CHICAGO!!  I claim the city as my own but I have never actually lived there.  I grew up in a south suburb about 20 minutes south of Comiskey Park now known as Cellular Field (where the Sox play).  That name won't go away just like the Sears Tower being called Willis Tower (WHAT?!)  


Being in Northwest Indiana now, we get there as often as possible when the kids are off school and you'll see why.  There's so much to see and do!







If you ever have the chance to come to Chicago, there's so much I didn't even mention!  Loads of family friendly things to do!


If you have been here, what was your favorite part?

Since we're going to be starting our new life on the road soon, maybe we'll make it up there. Looks great.

I've never been to Chicago but it does look fun! Those buildings are beautiful!

I love Chicago! It's one of my favorite cities and I'm always so glad we're not that far - being only a few hours by car. I try and get in at least 4-5 times a year. Awesome city!

I think you just made me want to visit Chicago and I never ever thought I'd want to.

I hope you got paid for this! Awesome video. I went to Chicago for the first time (I will go back) in 2008. It was great. We did one of the boat tours & caught a baseball game. GO CUBS!!! (sorry - my husband is a HUGE fan). My friends lived in Naperville, so we even got to ride the El.

My kids love the trolley ride in the summer, it takes us to all the hot spots and more!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I'm sure you have some great shots too..have you taken the trolley ride?

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Yay! I thought I showed it off pretty well..

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Thanks Dana! We are a family divided - I grew up on the Cubs and my husband is die hard Sox. Nice that you got to catch a game :)

I never wanted to go to Chicago until I saw this video. Now it's on my list of places to visit!

Jennifer said...

Wow, great pics! I've been to Chicago on biz trips, but unfortunately I came & went without time to sight-see.

Now THAT looks like a cool city! I've never been there. I've travelled a TON down South... but I haven't made it further north than Memphis! LAME! Your pics definitely make me wanna see the Windy City! I'll just have to wait for summertime because I am a Southern weather WIMP! :)
Thanks so much for linking this up for #SundayFunday! How cool!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

That's really the best time to come, more stuff to do - you should come, they have lots of great wine!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Can't wait - we're gonna make it after all!

Love it! I just drove there last month to the American Girl Doll Store. Had a picnic in the park by the lake. You should also know, I accidentally ran a Mazarati off the road in town. He failed to yield to my powder blue minivan.
