Day 5 - A Picture of Someplace I've Been

Chicago, IL
A couple of summers ago we took our two boys on a week long vacation to Chicago. We stayed at the DoubleTree Hotel, just off the Magnificent Mile.  Although we didn't do more than sight see, it was quite fun looking at the wide variety of merchandise displayed in the shop windows.  Moving away from Michigan Avenue, we found some interesting art.

The Eye was new.  In fact, I think it was actually revealed during our stay.  We didn't intentionally seek it out.  In fact, the picture below was taken from the MTA bus we were using to get to the museum of Science and Industry.

That was the only time we took the bus.  We mostly walked to and from our daily excursions, which included the Museum of Natural History and Shedd's Aquarium.
