I Love Chicago

I tagged along with my dad for one of his business trips to Chicago this past week so that I could see University of Chicago, and I must say, I fell in love with the city. The people, the energy, the food, the lakeside, the river running through the center, the parks, the culture, the everything! I just am infatuated with it all. Here are a few of the photos I took while there!
The view of the pier on Lake Michigan from our hotel window. Not a bad view!

Having a beachin' time

One of the things I loved about the city was how well they intertwined both natural and urban environments. There were parks, trees, and grassy areas everywhere. I guess this appreciation comes from learning about smart urban planning in AP Environmental Science..

They also intertwined old vs modern style buildings... loved it.

Steamboat tours along the river that runs through the city

I'm a geometry/architecture freak when it comes to photography, so maybe that's why Chicago struck me so profoundly.


A very, very similar design to our family crest.

  1. These photos are awesome! When you went with your dad how did you get around? I am planning on visiting the city and heard I should look into a Chicago limousine service to take me around. If Chicago is easy to walk, I think I would rather walk, but if there is driving involved, I think I would use a limo service, just because I don't want to get lost in an unfamiliar city. Also, what sites would you recommend seeing or places to eat at? Thanks for the help!

  2. Oh these are beautiful! I have been following your tumblr for a while now and I just found your blogspot.


  3. I just visited chicago this summer for Lollapalooza! and these photos bring back good memories of that same beach!! hope you had a lovely time, i also fell in love with the city xo
