After managing to get our luggage (and ourselves) into and out of the taxi, we arrived at our temporary home for the week. It was a third floor brownstone apartment off of Rush street. Rush street is a trendy little street with nice shops and restaurants. We were also within easy walking distance to the "Magnificent Mile", Chicago's famous shopping destination located on Michigan Avenue!
The one disadvantage that we had not really thought about, but noticed very quickly, was that there was no elevator...only a winding stairway leading to our third floor apartment. Normally not such a big deal, but remember the 13 pieces of stuff?!?!
That part was NOT fun!
The view from the top was absolutely AMAZING! A must-see when in Chicago!
To be honest, I didn't think that the "glass box" experience would be scary at all, but when we got up there, the kids had to literally pull me out onto it...and I didn't stay long!
