{Travel} Chicago Night 1/Day 2

At the end of summer we squeezed in one more college tour trip....to Chicago!
The flights and hotel prices were great in late August and we couldn't pass up the good deals. The weather looked like it was going to be ok too!
 We had a night flight out on a Sunday. I didn't mind it because it gave me extra time to pack and get the house ready. Miss High School had to work in the morning as well.
 I haven't been to an airport in awhile.  I thought this virtual library hot spot in the Philadelphia Airport was pretty cool!  Flying at night was nice because the airport wasn't crowded either.
 On our way!
 We flew into Midway Airport and headed to our hotel. We stayed at the Hilton Chicago Magnificent Mile Suites which seemed to be in a great central location. We checked out the hotel's BBQ restaurant for a little snack when we arrived. I love the tables here.
It started to pour while we were in the restaurant, touring the city would have to wait until the morning.
 Back in our hotel room, Mr Click and I watched the season finale of Game of Thrones with a little vino.
 Waking up to this view was amazing!
 Especially with some coffee!!
 We had an afternoon tour scheduled since we had gotten in pretty late the night before. After breakfast at the hotel we went out to explore our new neighborhood.   We stopped at the Fourth Presbyterian Church for some photos. What a beautiful garden sanctuary!
 More photos of the city as we explored that morning.
Rooftop pool at the hotel.
 We took an Uber ride to Evanston, Illinois to visit Northwestern University. The Evanston neighborhood reminded me of the houses from the movie Home Alone. So beautiful!
May I please go back to college? This is Chicago? It felt more like California on this day.  I'm sure February is a different story but still pretty.
 Before the tour we walked around campus for a bit and got some photos with the Chicago skyline in the background.

Hi Heather, it looks like you had fun in Chicago doing the college touring. I will have to read up on the rest of the trip. I mentioned you on my blog about organizing with storage bins. Have a nice day and week.
