The Windy City
We arrived in Chicago tired and in a foul mood. This wasn't the most free-spirited road trip I have ever taken. Seeing a gnarly Motel 6 in Schiller Park didn't put me and J in good spirits either.
We checked into the Sofitel and found happiness (at least in a great hotel and a good night's sleep). I always think either stop in first class hotels or camp. I don't like the in-betweens.
We did the whirlwind tour of Chi-town - the Navy Pier, Lincoln Park, Old Town, the Golden Mile, Wrigleyville, etc. All the right tourist spots. If it's just me and plenty of time, I'd hang in Wrigleyville pubs and just wait for Cubs games to start.
