Ten on Tuesday:  10 Things I Love About Visiting The City

1. Restaurants.

We discovered it in 2012 and now, a trip to Chicago doesn't seem complete without a stop at The Purple Pig.

2. Shopping

3. Architecture

4. Sometimes a movie or film that won't ever make it to our neck of the woods.

5. Sites.

Cloud Gate and Millennium Park.

6. Events.


7. Friends!


Visiting another city, such as Grand Rapids, New York, Salt Lake City, or Berkeley, sometimes means meeting up with a friend or three!

8. Museums


The boys and Sue at The Field Museum, Chicago.

9. Gawking… um, I mean PEOPLE WATCHING! Haha. There's no better place for it.

10. Options for getting around — train, subway, on foot.

  1. You may need to drive or fly to get to a big city, but you certainly have made your way to a few. I’m so happy you came here to visit me and lucky, too!

  2. yes to all those things! Seeing a movie in a big city theater is a whole different kind of experience. I’ve been to several in NYC – truly, it’s an event (which is good – I recall the tickets were way more than I pay at my suburban theater 😉
