Great day in Chicago. Haha Mostly in Union Station, however, I did venture out alone and walk the city and get a mani/pedi that I didn't have time for before I left. It was relaxing after not sleeping much on the train. Can't say we tried any good food here, but it is really not one of our stops that I spent a lot of time planning, as we are not even here for over night.
