Weekend in Chicago; Part 2

On Saturday we woke up early and headed to the Sears Tower to avoid the long wait. We were able to walk right in and make our way up to the 103 floor to the sky deck.

After the Sky Deck we walked to the theater district to take a picture of the Chicago Theater sign. And we had some breakfast at a cute little French cafe.


We didn't really know what to do with the rest of our time so we decided to take a cab to the Shedd Aquarium. It was about a $12 cab ride including tip and it was about an hour wait to get into the place! If we hadn't paid for the cab we probably would not have gone on it. I love seeing the whales and marine life but it is SO cruel to keep them locked up like this.


Our evening was pretty uneventful. Since we don't get cable at home, like I mentioned in my How to Save Money post, I spent my evening watching HGTV and only got about 3 hours of sleep before we needed to be up for the shuttle to the airport :)
