Chicago Architecture Tour

13 Nov

Last week I was lucky enough to be in Chicago for a conference. Chicago is one of my favorite cities. There are so many fun neighborhoods, lots to see and great food for just about any palate. I had to work for most of my stay, but I did get some time to sneak away a bit on my own and with friends.

A good friend and I have visited Chicago together a handful of times, and although we love to go to our favorites spots, we decided to try something different this time. We both enjoy architecture, so we booked the river architecture tour one afternoon. I think the timing was perfect–mid-afternoon before sunset, and it was a crisp fall day with beautiful colors all around. Oh! And lucky for us–we beat the polar vortex Chicago (and everyone else) is having this week! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the tour.

DSC_4783The tour guide we had was the cutest little woman. Her knowledge about all the buildings and the history of Chicago was amazing to hear. She really kept us entertained without being over the top with her commentary. If you haven’t done the river architecture tour, make sure you do the next time you’re in Chicago. You won’t be disappointed!
