Default Back From Chicago!

Well I just got back from the biggest trip i've ever driven my car on and somehow got 34mpg. I am sick and tired of looking at the back end of the 2004 Grand Prix. I drove with my friends family and they decided to rent a car. I told them they couldn't get a Taurus so they got a Grand Prix. Nice car but staring at it for 800 miles is
Anyways, it was a vey fun trip, probably the best one thus far.

Well, the first day we went to Kenosha, WI because its close to Six Flags Amusement park and got a motel room. That evening I drove down to Lake Michigan where people were catching salmon that are at least 3 feet long. At Six Flags I only rode on all of the roller coasters, expect a 20 min wait MINIMUM for any ride at Six Flags. When we went to Chicago the hotel room was the sh*tiest i've ever stayed in. It was pretty much a closet and the A/C was brocken; since we were on the 11th floor windows were weilded shut. It was TWICE as much as the one in Kenosha and the Kenosha room was 1000000 times better w/ a pool. Anyways in Chicago I went to Navy Peir which was very relaxing looking over Lake Michigan. We also went to the aquarium which had every marine species imaginable and of course to the Sears tower. The Chicago food was awsome. If you go to Chicago go to Weber Grill, you won't regret it. Anyways I toured the town and the night life a little, however I couldn't do much since i'm 20. Two more months to go.

I spent most of my life in the South Suburbs of Chicago. I love driving down LSD at night like 2AM. It is so awesome. I love the skyline too. IMO Chicago has the prettiest skyline I've ever seen during all of my travels. I always loved watching the city as the plane flew past. Spectacular.
