We have been in Chicago for one evening and 2 whole days to rest and relax after our ride staying in the Hard Rock hotel on Michigan Avenue. On Tuesday 25th we made up for our lack of ice cream in that we had a Ghirardelli’s ice cream breakfast/lunch. You can see from the photos we didn’t need to eat again until the evening. We spent the rest of the day with a little retail therapy combined with sightseeing and partaking of our “medicine.”
Yesterday (Wednesday) we took the 0825 Hiawatha (only the Yanks can have such good names for their trains) Amtrak train from Chicago to Milwaukee to visit the Harley Davidson museum. We arrived at 1000 and the museum was just a 15 minute walk from the station. We had a great time looking around the bikes and historical artefacts taking many photos. We caught the 1500 train back to Chicago where we had a relaxing afternoon and evening ready for our flight this morning.
Whilst in Chicago on this visit the weather has been cool for us only low 70’s (21 / 22 degrees). After the heat of the Mohave Desert of mid 40’s it has felt like winter!!!!
We fly to New York at 1130, to arrive at 1435 New York time.
