We traveled to Detroit to meet some of my daughter’s family members and since we were close to Chicago (4 hours away), we made a day trip there as part of our itinerary.
We Dined at:
- the Shake Shack inside the Willis Tower. That was for convenience’s sake. I had their ‘Schroom Burger and it was delicious. I believe the special flavored beverage I had was their Watermelon Mint Mojito. It was 100% non-alcoholic and refreshing.
- We went on a 1.5 hour boat tour along the River. That was a wonderful way to learn about Chicago’s architectural history and learn fun facts about the Windy City. The boat was The Summer of George. (Check Groupon.)
- We also went to the SkyDeck at the Willis Tower. While there, we went on the Ledge, which is a cool way to take pics high above the city. While at the SkyDeck you are able to see all sides of Chicago since the SkyDeck wraps around the entire 103rd floor. There are plenty of opportunities to snap fantastic pics while there so be sure to keep your batteries fully charged so you can capture it all via photo and video.
