CHICAGO - by Xusein

Was in Chicago last month and thought it was time to post the photos...

Amazing city, people said that it was like a smaller, nicer, and cheaper version of New York, but I felt more comparisons with Toronto. Checked the Loop, parts of the Near North Side and Navy Pier. Need to visit again.

Enjoy.

The tallest building in the US!! The Sears (ohhh...I meant Willis) Tower!

The Lakeshore. A good respite from the 100F (37C) heat.

Now I've seen three of the Great Lakes (Erie, Ontario, Michigan). Just Huron and Superior to go!





Lake Shore Drive
