Today I decided to list my three top things to do in Chicago. I highly recommend visiting the city if you enjoy any of the following: sports, architecture or shopping.
My number one favourite was the games and sport activities we got to enjoy on our trip. United Center was a really nice place to go. It was so amazing to one night see it as a ice hockey rink and the next night see it completely changed into a basketball court. The ice hockey game itself was a little bit slow, but seeing ice hockey live has always been my thing. In addition, the lightning shows and music in the beginning of the game are truly fascinating (pictures above).
I have never been a big fan of basketball but this game really changed me, it was so amazing! I literally cannot explain it but it was an unbelievable experience. Definitely a basketball fan now on.
The Field Museum is a museum of history. It was massive. We had way too little time to see it, but the little part we saw was very interesting and truly evoked my interest in history again. A part of Indiana Jones has actually been filmed in the museum.
Chicago has some amazing architecture and really nice houses. Two places you should visit is the 360chicago with view of the entire city. Here you could try out “the Tilt” a little moving glasbox which moved towards the ground. It was so cool and scary (I kept on swearing the entire time). Another great place was the Willis Tower, formerly the highest building in the world. From a box with nothing but glas you could admire the city in 442meters height.
Really enjoyed this vacation, thank you to all 49 people in our group.
