We arrived at Union Station on Saturday May 10 with a 7 hour layover. After we dropped off our bags we went for lunch at Giordano’s. Many people have recommended that we go there. It was still crowded when we arrived a little after 2 pm. Yes, we were intimidated by how thick the pizza was. But, it was very good and we did eat most of a small pizza.
Now time to walk it off. We continued down Jackson to the lake. We were passed by a tour of Segway’s. We saw several tours of Segway’s that day. Then on to Buckingham Fountain and the first of many wedding parties taking pictures that day. From there we walked down the lake and on north. It was a warm and sunny day and many people were out.
We walked up to Millennium Park for our pictures with the bean. Then north on Michigan and down the stairs to the River Walk. It was just a great day to be out and walking in down town Chicago.
You do not have to do anything special to enjoy a sunny spring day in Chicago, except to be there. We were lucky enough that we could.
