Chicago – Part 2

My third day in Chicago (Part 1 HERE) was super chill as I spent a majority of the day riding a Divvy bike through Lake Shore Drive. It was such a great way to see the skyline and the view of the city along the shore. I feel like it’s something that tourists wouldn’t typically plan to do but I definitely recommend spending half a day on the trail! I spent some time at Millennium Park and took selfies with The Bean (total disappointment).

Later that night I went to the John Hancock Observatory which is known as 360 Chicago, particularly known for Tilt, which is a unique (patented) experience where you’re tilted 30 degrees outside the 94th floor of the building over Downtown Chicago. I loved the experience!

The next morning, I captured the view from atop the Willis Tower which was also highly recommended due to The Ledge – a glass box that sticks out of the 103rd floor. It makes for amazing photo ops and the view was breathtaking! My recommendation if you’re looking to choose between the two towers would be the Willis Tower (during the day). However, if you have time, I would recommend doing both at different times of the day like I did!

I then went to the Museum of Science and Industry and spent a good 4 hours checking out the unique installations and tours they had! I loved the experience and if you’re a science nerd like me, it’s worth checking out 😀
