My quick transit in Minneapolis was as blurry as how jet blast escapes an aircraft engine. In my desperate need to just want to sit back down again, I sped off to what seemed the other side of earth to attempt my next standby battlefield to Chicago.
In my dazed state, I knew the protocol to …
... and by the time we turned from Michigan Avenue onto Lake Shore Drive there were plenty of seats available. We got off at Burton Place, just near the International Museum of Surgical Science - a suggestion to Yvonne that we pop in there for an hour or two was not greeted with any enthusiasm. We walked west along Burton to N. State Parkway, where we turned right, but we had not gone far down that street before we found ourselves nearing ...

There are also some other Wright-designed houses in Oak Park which can be seen on a walking tour. We also went to his other famous design, the Robie House in Hyde Park and 10 miles south of the city centre – Barak Obama’s house is in this suburb.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDana Hotel And Spa Chicago
The hotel was fantastic. In a great location and room although compact, cleverly designed to create space. Staff were friendly on check in and check out, and the hotel doorman was especially attentive when giving me directions to the nearest coffee shops to help cure my jetlag.
Rooftop bar was great, generally a little quiet during the week, but the roof blew off over the weekend, with an awesome atmosphere both inside and out, great music and excellent cocktails!
