On our recent long weekend in Chicago, the town was all decked out for Christmas. We’d never been to Union Station before, so we stepped in to see its stunning Great Hall.
I can’t imagine all the work the city has to put in to wrap so many trees with little lights. The trees are lit on street after street in the Loop.
We walked north across the Chicago River for dinner. The buildings along the river were lit in red and green, and terraces were strung with lights.
I live in a small Indiana town that seriously decorates its downtown for Christmas, and it’s charming. But it can’t touch what Chicago has done if for no other reason than its sheer scale.
Come back Christmas Day and I’ll show you photographs of the giant Christmas tree in Millennium Park. It’s stunning!
