For the first time during the holiday we’ve managed to have a bit of a break and just relax and take things slower. It’s been nice to catch our breath, in what’s known as the “Windy City”, Chicago.
Chicago is the beginning (or the end, depending on which way you go!) of Route 66, although being such a big city, there’s not much sign of the old Mother Road. Except for, of course, the signs…
If you are looking for Route 66 stuff in the Chicago area, look for the Route 66 museum in Berwyn. It’s only small, but well worth a visit!
We’ve also enjoyed doing a bit of sightseeing in Chicago. It feels like the biggest city I’ve ever been to – even though I’ve been to London many times! The buildings are fascinating, an interesting mix of old and new side by side. Plus there’s the beautiful Lake Michigan Lakefront. Add to that some friendly locals and awesome Pizza and I have to say Chicago’s made a pretty good impression on me. 🙂
Next stop, Detroit!
P.S. I apologise for the distinct lack of car pictures lately… Let me make up for that. oxo
