This.
Both my and my husband's hometown is just a few hours south of Chicago. I used to take day or weekend trips there often. The city is quite enjoyable and I always thought the lack of needing to drive was a huge draw, lol.

I'm not a fan of IL in general, but I do love Chicago. Probably because I live in a place with no museums whatsoever. Horrors

I'm very close to Chicago too I think SillySally is as well. I can get to Chicago (driving) in about an hour-ish......depending on traffic of course.

We normally have about the same weather Chicago is having since we live nearly straight east, and being a Florida girl, you most definitely will not like it, LOL This winter has been very mild though with only a couple snow storms. It is snowing right this minute though BOO!

As others have said, shopping, museums, shopping, restaurants, shopping, plays, shopping.......tons to do if you like the big city! LOL

PS The south shore train will only cost you $8 to come see me! hahahaha

They do have really good public transportation, which is why my sister really wanted to go there. A different sister did go to Wheaton, which is outside of Chicago, so we've visited there, and I love that city. It was so much prettier then New York, it was fun, windy, clean, the atmosphere was awesome. And they have cool parks. And the bean is epic.

I would throw in my .02, but I mostly only saw Linds' couch... It was a lovely couch, though. Very comfortable. Definitely worth going to college near it.

I did not realize we had this many Chicago-ish Chazzers. I have every intention of making it out that way in the next couple months, we'll have to have a meet up.

All I know about Chicago is Jerry Springer and Oprah where filmed there.

I vote give Chicago a try , You know what Boston is Like and why not expand your horzions , especially if it is almost free. Heck you did cold and snow last year in so the weather should not be a put off.

What about your medical issues , do they have to be considered , or you commuting to the doc? well really not my business just wanted to throw that ot if you had not considered it.


Okay that is all.

NO kidding... mmmmmm.

The closest Giordanos to me is still about an hour and forty minutes away... waaaay too far. Though maybe that's a good thing because I might be really fat if one was closer.

I don't even LIKE deep dish pizza. It's THAT good people.
OMG.


Oh yeah, and there's also ANY dog sport you could want up there. Dock diving? Okay. Earth dog? Sure. Agility? Uh-huh. Confo? Yup. Flyball? Fo' sho'.
Down here I can get agility and earth dog aaaaand that's about it.

I've only ever been to Chicago on trips, mainly to see concerts. We were there last year for an anime convention, as well as a Distant Worlds concert. LOL The parts I've been in, I've liked. For the convention we drove (3 hours away from us) and our world basically existed of the hotel (and the hot tub. Bwahahaha). But for the concert, my friend, sister, and I took the train up and walked everywhere we needed to go. It was great. My back hurt from walking after awhile, as we were lugging our luggage in a backpack about 90% of the time, but it was still great.
