Chicago is one of the skyscraper places in the US that I love to visit someday, or even land my feet on US soil for the very first time. Only have to spend 18 hours on flight.

I hope you can visit sometime. I'm sure you'd come away with some really great shots.

IT WOULD BE WORTH IT DUDE! Chicago is a must see for the scraper lover. everything is set up so neatly. I could walk around downtown for days. Plus they were talking about running a train all the way to milwaukee soon too. Then it would be like a two for one.

There's been an Amtrak line between Chicago and Milwaukee for quite awhile now. I'm originally from Milwaukee, so I take it all the time. It's going to be upgraded to allow for high speed service.

when i went to visit my brother in waukegan the line ended in kenosha and i heard they were extending that one. of course i will take your word on this because you would definitely be more of an expert on this subject.

That's actually the Metra, not Amtrak.

Is that the Merch Mart? It is so massive! When Calgary grows up, we want to be as good as Chicago's architecture.
George, I hope I get the SSP.com family bulk discount.
