Part 4: Blending Day 2 – Sightseeing in downtown Chicago

We had a full day out in Chicago today! As we are staying at the homes of believers all over the city and around the area, we used different modes of transport to get around: CTA trains and buses, metro, divvy bikes, water taxi, and our two legs!

 

The Cloud Gate (more commonly known as The Bean) at Millennium Park was our meeting place in the morning to gather over 70 UK saints from the UK travelling to Chicago before the NACT.

 

From there we scattered in groups to visit many tourist attractions. Some bought the Go Chicago Explorer Pass, which included entrance into 3-5 sites whilst others opted to wander around the city and see the Navy Pier, listen to a live orchestra at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and go up the Skydeck. There is a lot to see and do in Chicago!

We made sure that some of our sightseeing including trying the Chicago food. We were recommended by the local saints to go to Giordano’s Pizza to try the famous deep dish pizza. We were not disappointed!

During the day, we held our third photo competition. This time the prize was a froyo or boba (bubble tea)! Head over to the Chicago Photography Competition post to see all the entries and their captions. The winners have been announced here!
