Visiting the Windy City

 

     The big day had arrived.  We had all packed up and were ready to drive to Chicago.  I was ready for the 5 hour drive.  My family has been to Chicago many times before.  Sometimes to visit our relatives, other times to visit fancy restaurants.  But this time was different.  This time we were going to the famous Adler Planetarium.  We had chosen to go there because we have been to almost every other attraction in Chicago.  On one of our trips we went to Soldier Field, on another Shedd Aquarium.  When you walk into Adler Planetarium you come to a front desk.  You get to choose to go to a planetarium show.  During the time that your waiting you get to walk around the planetarium until the show starts.

     Some of the things you see when you are in the planetarium are small versions of the planets, an exact replica of the Mars Rover,  and even a giant meteorite.  There were people everywhere.  It smelt really good because there was a cafe right next to us.  There was also a really big gift shop.  Some of the things you could buy in the gift shop were legos, t-shirts, keychains, and magnets but thats only some of the things.  When we left the planetarium we were right next to Lake Michigan so we took a picture of my family standing in front of Lake Michigan.

     Overall we had a really good trip because all of it was really fun.  We all got souvenirs and they all were really cool.  After we got home we started to unpack and put our souvenirs on our walls and rested.

I liked how you described the different places you visited in Chicago. I wanted to know more about them. We went to the Field Museum right by the planetarium and it was a fun place to visit also.
