Chicago, Illinois (3rd - 4th July 2008)
We woke early since tak nak rugi masa. Checked out from the hotel and simpan semua bags dlm kereta. Dah settle simpan barang, bermula episod jelajah Chicago.
We took a stroll along the Grant Park. Cantik, especially time Summer ni. We did take some pics around the park, and not to missed the Buckingham Fountain too. Kata orang since fountain ni dah jadi landmark Chicago, tak complete la trip ke Chicago kalau takde gambar kat fountain ni.
While walking in the park, kami start atur plan. We've decided to start with the Shedd - The World's Aquarium, the largest indoor aquarium in the world. At first our impression was like, sure lebih kurang Aquaria KLCC la ni. However, we were wrong.
Shedd Aquarium is HUGE! They seems like have the collection of the underwater world, globally. Really impressive and not to be missed while you're in Chicago. Dlm Shedd, kami sempat tgk dolphin show dgn Spongebob 4D show. It was interesting though even nothing to shout compared to those in Disney. We were amazed with the collection of the underwater creatures yg ada dlm tu, especially those dlm Wild Reef.
From Shedd Aquarium we took a boat ride on the Michigan Lake from Shedd Aquarium to Navy Pier. The ride was around 15 minutes and dpt la tgk Chicago skyline from the lake. Navy Pier nampak mcm meriah, byk activities for the kids. But we decided to skip, since our next target is HRC Chicago.
We get some souvenirs from HRC and had our lunch there. The nachos, vegie burger and grilled salmon was great. The portion are big, siap leh tapau bawa balik.
From HRC we walked back to Millennium Park. On the way, we did stopped at few boutiques (as usual, mr ayah sempat lagi beli suit). At millennium park, ader Cloud Gate, design lebih kurang mcm bean. Ramai betul org kerumun bean nie. Semua nak tgk reflection masing2 :D We skipped the Crown Fountain coz we knew, kalau lalu situ, confirm littleman sangkut kat situ. Ramai betul budak main air kat situ. Joey je yg pergi snap pictures kat situ.
We headed back to our car, and bergerak balik ke Kent, Ohio, joey's place.
