I snuck a picture of the inside through one of the windows on the front patio. This was my favorite room in the house. All those windows are actually doors that open up to a side porch. That must have been the most pleasant room on summer evenings.
After our meal, we sat in the lobby for a while, soaking in all the glorious decor
After having such a big lunch AND dinner we needed to do some walking, my poor little tummy was about to burst! So, my dad and I decided to walk down to Navy Pier to see it all lit up at night!
Why yes I did buy a Navy Pier sweatshirt and wore it when I went back, like a true tourist. Those sweatshirts normally cost $50 but I got mine for $15! Such a great deal!
We were excited to ride the Farris wheel and see the city all lit up from the top of the wheel. The view was spectacular!
After our fun Farris wheel ride we walked around the rest of the grounds for a little bit, but the pier was closing soon so we couldn't go too far from the entrance. All the cafes and attractions looks so fun all lit up in twinkle lights and neon signs.
Our walk back to the hotel was awesome. We got excellent views of the Pier for half of the walk, and spectacular views of the city for the other half.
This was the path we took, right on the waters edge
We took a short cut across the amazing BP bridge to get to Millennium Park. I'm glad we did because the Jay Pritzker Pavilion is a sight to be seen when it is all lit up at night. The colors are constantly changing creating all sorts of different color combinations.
