Over my winter break, my friend Eddie and I decided we needed a little get away to combat our cabin fever we have with our love to hate Ohio.

We had just been to New York so we decided we could drive up to Chicago, eat some popcorn and stare at a bean.

Here are pictures of our adventure! Do you recognize any of these places?

IMG_1265This is the view from our hotel room- Marriott on the Magnificent Mile.


IMG_1289The famous “Bean” .. named the “Cloud Gate.” Ultimate place for artsy selfies, of course. πŸ˜‰



IMG_1313This is the annual “Christmas Market” in Delay Plaza in downtown Chicago. It was packed. I would recommend going earlier on in the day and coming very hungry.. lots and lots of good food!
