Early July we met my brother, his wife and son in Chicago for a long weekend.
I’ve been to Chicago, Illinois many times, and each time I visit it is like visiting for the first time as I have a different experience each time.
While visiting I took a bunch for B&W photos and this post is a photoessay of my visit.
STARBUCKS RESERVE CHICAGO ROASTERY
We went to our first Starbucks Reserve Roastery while in Chicago and it was so cool! I rarely go to Starbucks and would rather support a small independent coffee shop, but I would recommend if you come across on you should visit it at least once, it is quite an experience.
Here is a photo from first entering the roastery:
We spent a bit of time in Millennium Park which is a “mandatory” place to visit on first trip to Chicago.
Here are some photos from wandering around downtown Chicago.
360 CHICAGO OBSERVATION DECK
On our last day in Chicago we went to the the 360 Chicago Observation Deck at the top of the former John Hancock building. I’ll close the post with these photos from 1000ft above Chicago on the Magnificent Mile.
