So why Chicago? Well, in one of my online searches, it was even cheaper to fly Baltimore-Chicago-Las Vegas than directly flying to Las Vegas. A chance to have a two-day stopover in Chicago sounded reasonable enough so as to visit my friends and, of course, that Bean.
This two-day Chicago getaway made us experience Chicago for what is was known for, the Windy City. It may have been our fault going there during winter, but it became an adventure of sorts that I didn't mind the weather despite advice from friends. But it turned out to be a good stop-over, while walking down Chicago streets and admiring the architecture of the building, trying the deep dish pizza from the first Uno Restaurant, where my buddy used to work, a hike up the Willis Tower and the Ledge, and of course, the Bean. But this will be a separate post!
