Chicago, Chicago that toddling town!

I never posted any pictures from my Chicago on this blog. Usually my personal stuff goes on Carolyn in Carolina. But since I am away and not posting this week, I figured that maybe you might want to check out some pics and stories.

We had a great time. Hubby was there for a conference so I tagged along. Why not, right? It was freezing cold but I saw some great sites. Ate some great food and crossed the Windy City off my list.

I also have to give a shout out to CityPASS. I received 2 CityPASS books to use on this trip. Our trip was short but I used the ticket for the John Hancock Observatory and the Art Institute of Chicago. If you visit one of the cities where CityPASS services, get the CityPASS.

Here is a little more information about CityPASS:

For more than 16 years, CityPASS ticket booklets have been the premier product for travelers who want to visit a destination's top attractions while enjoying significant savings of up to 50 percent. CityPASS, which has a 95 percent customer recommendation rating, contains prepaid admission to the most popular attractions in 11 North American destinations: New York City, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Toronto and Southern California. For more information, visit

Each CityPASS contains actual admission tickets to a destination's top five or six attractions.  At many sights, CityPASS provides VIP access, allowing travelers to bypass an attraction's main-entrance ticket line.  CityPASS ticket booklets are valid for nine consecutive days, beginning with the first day of use.  

It saved us a lot of money just as it did when we visited Atlanta. It is such a fantastic deal! Check out CityPass when traveling.

Here are some pics and links to my blog posts if you want to see more! Enjoy.
