Chicago…that toddlin’ town with world class shopping, dining, museums, galleries and lots of late Summer fun. This is traditionally the quietest of the Summer weekends (right after Labor Day). And yet everything is still going including boat rides, museums, no lines at the Sky Deck at Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, Hancock Building and Garrett’s Popcorn (really).

Sail through the Art Institute with no one in front of you. See the Mummies without delay at the Field Museum. Take a selfie at the Cloud Gate in Millennium Park without annoying tourists. Do Chicago Your way.

The day begins with FREE PARKING and 8:15am BREAKFAST BUFFET. At 8:45am our COACH BUS (restroom on board) leaves for down- town Chicago. Your ADVANCE PLANNING PACKET contains ideas of what to do and see.

At 10:30am we arrive at STOP #1: The Museum Campus (Adler Planetarium/Shedd Aquarium/ Field Museum). The Bus stops right in front of each museum at the“Front Door”.

Next it’s STOP #2: Art Institute/State Street/ Millenium Park.

Then it’s STOP #3: Navy Pier with boat rides, luncheon cruise, Ferris Wheel, shopping, enter- tainment, dining at Bubba Gump’s Shrimp House, Harry Carey’s Tavern, Chicago Pizza and Hot Dogs. Finally we come to STOP #4: North Michigan Avenue – The Magnificent Mile with fantastic shopping at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom’s, Bloomindale’s, The American Girl Store, Garrett’s Popcorn, Coach Store, Ditka’s Steak House, Eataly, The Shake Shop, The Big Bowl Chinese & Thai Restaurant and so much more!

The day is “On-Your-Own” 10:45am-4:30pm when Pick-ups start (schedule in Advance Planning Packet). We leave at 5:30pm with TREAT BAG, BEVERAGE and RAFFLE PRIZES arriving in Milwaukee at 7:30pm. (This is a GREAT trip to a terrific city at a very low price without crowds, the hassle and expense of driving & parking.)
