I've always loved to travel and explore new cities, states and countries. The pandemic curtailed travel for my family but recently I've traveled a bit with my youngest as she prepares to select a college. I like to try restaurants, shops and other attractions that are local favorites to really experience the destination. I'm more traveled than some, but less than others and hope to do more exploring soon.

Millennium Park - Chicago
My youngest and I traveled to Chicago last August for some college tours. We squeezed in a bit of sightseeing and enjoyed Millennium Park. You must make the obligatory stop at The Bean (aka Cloud Gate) for a photo op - you can see how thrilled my teen is next to me in the photo above. There were a ton of things to see and do - we were on a time crunch so we only got to experience a small part of the park. We did catch a dress rehearsal for a concert happening later that night which was pretty amazing.
