I visited Chicago last week for a few days to attend a regional meeting. I don’t travel very often with my job, but I’ve had a few opportunities to visit places like Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Louisville, Kentucky.
Most of my time was spent inside the hotel and attending meetings, but I did manage to sneak out one afternoon for some sightseeing and I joined a group of colleagues to watch the Chicago Bears play against the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Stadium. I’m a huge NFL fan and Soldier Field is legendary, so this was a clear highlight of my trip.
I’ve been to Chicago a few times and it consistently ranks as my top 3 favourite cities in the United States (San Francisco and Portland are the other two). I love the old brick buildings and canals that split the downtown core. And yes, many slices of Chicago-style deep pizza were consumed. Too many, in fact.
Here are a few photos from my trip.

Daaaaa Bears! They actually won a home game… first one of the season.
