Downtown Chicago

I had never stepped foot in Chicago until June 2006. I lived and worked there for four months. It was love at first sight. From the moment I stepped off the plane the people, the architecture, the lake, the views, the history enchanted me. It was pure unadulterated magic. I lived in Wrigleyville but a girl needs her space from time to time and the best place for me to be alone was the busiest place in Chicago: Downtown. Bustling streets filled with people and noise was the perfect place for me to lose myself.

Skyscrapers towering over you, encasing you, almost protecting you. The Chicago River snaking through the city. The lake is just moments away. Parks that allow you to kick back and relax and soak it all up. The shudder of the El Train whooshing past. It’s just perfect. I would recommend going during the summer, the weather is just unbelievable. During the day you can shop up a storm on the Magnificent Mile, or visit one of the many museums and douse yourself in the art and culture of Chicago. Or you can chill in Grant Park or look at the stunning art installations in Millennium Park. At night you can watch fireworks by the lake and walk among the breathtaking sights. During the summer there are amazing festivals held downtown including the Taste of Chicago, a food lovers dream and the infamous Lollapalooza. I suggest walking to the south end of Grant Park for amazing views of the city and a trip to the top of the John Hancock building is a must for breathtaking sights. I left Chicago in October and seem to have left a small part of me there too. The place is inspirational and a lomographers dream.
