Arrived in Chicago the coach was waiting also the local tour guide who started as soon as we're grouped together ...in the station which is Union Station! Lots of films been made there also a lot of history. We had a tour of the city for a couple of hours , stopped of at Mcie D. As we hadn't had a good sleep most of us just wanted together to our Hotel. The MileNorth Hotel , however when we got there we felt ok and me & Doris went for a walk around our area, it was buzzing ...we stopped at this Italian restaurant were we enjoyed a nice meal + a bottle of wine. We fell into bed and slept well.
We didn't rush about , took thing at leisure as our day was our own.
Walked at while ...looked in some shops then took a bus to Willes tower, which has 103 floors it took 1 minute in the lift the views were spectacular we took a few photos. Time went so fast it was then 3pm so we headed of to see the John Handcock Centre... 100 storeys high, but before that happened we spotted the The Cheese Cake Factory so we went in. Had another lovely meal our waiter was from New York he told us places to go and eat also Free music sessions to watch we then walked to John Handcock centre got to 95 floor in 36 seconds we had a.lovely cocktail each took some photos and walked back to hotel
We left to catch train to Buffalo to see Niagara falls ,once we all got on train and had cheese and biscuits and wine,in dining car it was a lovely atmosphere then into our little roomette with a sink and toilet l had to get on top bunk of course, l didn't sleep to good.we went to see Niagara falls it was great experience back to hotel showered in bed 4 pm we are knicker knackered.
As Doris mentioned Niagara Falls it was fantastic it is one of the 7wonders of the World, we didn't think we would see a lot of of it being in the USA as the best side is in Canada but we saw both ! We took a boat all loaded with everyone dress in blue mac's from head to toe and we were still soaked from top to bottom!
My legs are sooooo much better its must be all the walking we are doing.
The hotel we are in is only 10 mins walk to the Falls! The Sheridan it's the worst hotel of the trip ( not nice ...yucky ) good job it's only been one night.
