  1. If you have the kids with you, head to Lincoln Park Zoo and the lakefront. Spend the morning at our free zoo, then head a block east to the beach with an awesome view of the skyline. If you are alone, the architecture boat tour is awesome for seeing Chicago at its best, and it’s interesting too, even if you aren’t a big architecture buff. http://www.chicagoline.com/

    • Colleen Lanin, The Travel Mama says:

      Thank you for the Chicago tips, Susan! I will be solo. I keep hearing wonderful things about the architecture boat tour so I am definitely going to try to do that!

  2. Sounds like a fantastic event…and what a great choice for a keynote speaker! 😉 If I lived near Chicago, I’d definitely attend.

      Thank you, Stephanie! I hope one of these days we can hook up IRL at an event or during our travels!
