Since I am currently in Indianapolis for a couple of weeks for work related training, some colleagues and I decided to go a Weekend to Chicago. When we were getting close to the city, and were seeing it a few miles away, it’s true that it felt like in a movie, with those skyscrapers dominating the view over everything else.
Once we arrived we explored a little bit and looked for a place to have dinner before going to sleep, and between those high buildings that seemed infinite, it’s impossible to not get that unreal sensation of being in a movie. The next day, after sleeping some hours, that sensation decreased once I realized it was all real.
We arrived Friday evening, and used all Saturday to see the city and the points of interest we had marked. The following is a map of the main places we visited (we did not see the Field Museum and the Adler Planetarium because we run out of time).
Two facts to highlight are:
The Skydeck of the Willis Tower is on the 103rd floor, 412 meters above the ground. We visited it during the day.
The 360 Chicago of the Hancock Tower is on the 94th floor, 313 meters above the ground. We visited it during the night.
Both have amazing views!
The following are some of the photos I made during our trip. They can also be seen on Flickr.
