Although sweltering hot in the Midwest’s intense heat wave this week, I spent a few days with my son in Chicago. Since I’ve visited the city’s famous museums several times, my son took me on an architecture/historical Chicago river boat tour. It was fantastic and I highly recommend this on your “bucket list”. At the end of this mini-photo tour, you’ll see what traditional and famous Chicago treat we had for dinner!
The “Aqua” building that won best architecture design award in the world this year!
The design of the balconies imitates the waves of Lake Michigan.
Flowers are everywhere lining the river and Chicago streets, hanging from balconies, along walk-ways, and more.
Kayakers out on the river enjoying the sunny day!
My son on the boat with the Chicago sky-line and Sears Tower in the background.
After the end of the architectural river boat tour, we ended the day with a delicious, out-of-this-world, super deep-dish and stuffed Chicago-style pizza!
As “old blue eyes” used to sing, “Chicago is my kind of town!”
What a great weekend with my son!
