With a few days in Chicago there was time to be a tourist wandering around downtown and beyond.
Some of the highlights;
The merchandisers/retailers hall of fame. Woolworth, Penney and more.
The Chicago River
Water Taxi and the impressive Merchandise Mart
Harold Washington Library
A mix of old and new
Tourist boat going past the touristy Navy Pier
Chicago Cultural Center
Maxwell Street Market – not on Maxwell Street anymore
Chess Records – 2120 South Michigan Avenue (also a great song)
For fans of the movie The Blues Brothers – The East 95th Street Bridge – where they jump the Bluesmobile.
