Our Final Stop: The Shedd Aquarium

After the Cubs won, we walked back to S's apartment and promptly fell asleep. It's crazy how much we crammed into two short days, but we did as much as we could. When we woke up on Sunday we decided to take it slow. We ended up getting breakfast at a place near S's apartment, and then went back to the apartment to pack up. 

After we packed up all of our stuff, we went and dropped it at S's work so that we could go to the Shedd Aquarium before heading back to Florida. We took the bus there which was very cool for me because then we got to see the Field Museum & Soldier Field on the way. We briefly walked by but hurried to the aquarium. 

While the Cubs winning the NLCS game will forever be the highlight of the trip, the second best part of the trip (besides being able to spend so much time with S) was going to the Shedd Aquarium. My two favorite animals are elephants & sting rays. At Shedd they have a huge sting ray touch pool (thankfully that was open) that they let us spend as much time as we wanted there. 

I absolutely love aquariums & like to visit them in every city that I go to, add that with the fact that they have a huge touch pool this easily became one of my favorite aquariums that I've ever been to. It's located on Lake Michigan & has amazing views of the city. This happens to be one of the bigger aquariums that I've been to. They have a ton of different species of fish, and in the middle of the aquarium they have a huge Wild Reef which was amazing to sit and watch. If you have time to go to the aquarium while you're in Chicago I would definitely say go - for the stingray pool alone. 

To read about my adventure in Chicago started, you should start here, but it continues when we land which is quite a doozy in itself, goes on a with a walking tour to see Millennium Park & Navy Pier, continues with a trip to Lincoln Park Zoo & Oz Park, and then we watched the NLCS game in Chicago (nbd)
