Chicago IL. (2016)


I have ordered visitors guides and maps for all the states we will be visiting, can’t wait to start really looking for places to stay, transportation routes and things to do. Feel free to offer advice, do’s and do not’s, and if you have connections to help with places to stay/things to do or eat let us know. Thanks!

The Chicago transit system is where the bus stop is and the train system a block over. Chicago transit

The Megabus stop is located at “Please read your reservation details carefully to determine the correct location of your bus stop! From Thursday, January 7th, 2016, ALL operated arrivals AND departures have relocated to Van Buren St., between South Canal St and Clinton Street. The location between Canal St and the S. Wacker Drive is no longer in use.” From what I can tell this is really close to Union Station so hotel ideas/hookups/help?

It is official we have reservations (thanks to the great lady Lauren from The Downtown Courtyard Marriott in Nashville) for The Congress for October the 1st and 2nd. congress2

Lauren got us a discount for this hotel and HERS!!! Now if I can figure out the trains and buss schedules so we can save money getting to Roackford I will be doing good. I haven’t gotten anything back for things to do in Chicago or meals so it may be 2 days of Subway LOL If anyone wants to say HI let us know on facebook or email and we will get a cup of coffee. (I do have Starbucks money on my app). I sure hope I hear from one of the boat tours those look amazing.
