28. Illinois

IMG_20180825_122443.jpgIn our typical frugal manner, we realized it would save more than $100 per person to stop overnight in Chicago on our way back from Alaska. So… we did! Huge thanks to my friend Ally (hey girl!), we had a place to stay. The next day, we got to explore the city a little bit and catch up with lots of friends from many walks of life. It was Matt’s first visit!

  • The Bean
  • Millenium Park
  • The waterfront
  • West Loop
  • Ballast Point Brewing
  • Lou Malnati’s Pizza

 

And then we hurried off back to the airport with a few beers in our system! It was a really quick trip, but a city that I absolutely love. We’ll be back!
