Chicago. It's only a couple of hours from Madison, and there's an awful lot to do there.
From February 4 through 6, 2005, I took a weekend trip to downtown Chicago. Somehow I managed
to cram the Museum of Science and Industry, the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Planetarium, the
Hancock Observatory, and the Art Institute into just three days. It's a fun place to visit,
though for a small-town boy like me, it's not always a fun place to drive!
