Just starting to plan a 4-5 day trip to Chicago in late Sept 2009, combining with a similar amount of time in Detroit.
We're a 50+ couple, with a real interest in soul music from 60s onwards - hence this twin-location trip. But we want to do other stuff as well. So, a few questions....
What is weather generally like in Chicago late Sept?
Any recomendations re transport to/from Detroit?
Although we know we'll find plenty of blues venues, what about anything re the legacy of Curtis Mayfield etc?
And what other activities/interests might be good? We like sightseeing, shopping, dining, etc
Any help very welcome.
