Well, it's a tie. The clear winners of where we want to meet are either Chicago or Boston. They each received 30% of the vote in the earlier poll. So now to choose. I have written down a few of the fun things there are to do in Chicago and Matt was kind enough to do the same for Boston. Just to kind of give everyone ideas. If you would only come if it was in one city or another, please let us know that as well. If it's a close vote, but we have several people who can ONLY go to one city, that might change where we go.
So if we go to Chicago....
~ We can go to Navy Pier which has lots of shops, restaurants, Ferris Wheel and a Childrens Museum. It's right on the river.
~ We can take the Chicago River tour which tells you all about the history and architecture of the city
~ We can go to the top of the Sears Tower
~ We Can shop the Magnificent Mile which has Marshall Fields, Nike Town, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales just to name a few!
~ There are many mueseums including the Art museum which is right dowtown.
~ The night life is great with great bars and restaurants
~ If we plan ahead enough we could go see a great show like the Blue Man group or Tony and Tina's Wedding.
Or if we go to Boston...
~ There is the harbour area (Faneuil Hall) which is very beautiful with lots of shops and restaurants. There are street performers outside weekends and evenings.
~ We can Walk through Boston common
~ We can Walk the "freedom trail" (goes to many historic sites including the Old Stone Church, USS Constitution, and many museums).
~ We can go Biking, walking around the Charles River.
~ We can Go to Symphony hall or seeing a play in the theater district
~ We can Go to the North End (Italian restaurants and an historic old part of the city.
~ We can go to the Art Museum which is excellent
~ We can go Shopping in the trendy "Newbury Street" area.
~ We can go to the Aquarium is amazing (on the harbour).
We can go to the "Hatch Shell" (an outdoor ampitheater) often hosts free concerts in including performances by the Boston Pops.
~ There are plenty of cool dance clubs and concerts around Kenmore Square.
~ There are Many great bookstores.
In general, Boston is a very small walking city
I think we'll have a great time no matter where we go! We just need to decide. Happy Voting! Please feel free to comment!!!!
