Last Tuesday night, the Chilhowie band loaded up a bus and headed north to Chicago, Illinois! They drove overnight to arrive in Chicago in the morning. On Wednesday, they saw the hit Broadway play, Hamilton and took a bus tour of the city. Over the course of the next three days, they visited Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, and Navy Pier, guided by their awesome tour guide, Thomas. They saw the Blue Man Group and a Cub's game a Wrigley Field, as well! They drove home all day on Sunday, arriving back in Chilhowie Sunday evening. Everyone had so much fun on the trip, as there was something for everyone to enjoy. However, after running around Chicago for five days, everyone was tired and happy to be home.
