Up early and headed to the airport to catch a short flight over the giant lake to Chicago, Illinois! We arrived in Chicago and Washington picked us up in the Chicago Classic Charter bus.  We were whisked to Wrigley Field and had a personal meet and great with Coach Joe Maddon. It was a great thrill to watch the World Champion Chicago Cubs play baseball in the historic Wrigley Field Stadium.

We left the stadium in enough time to check into the Embassy Suites on State Street to change for dinner. Next stop – the world famous Geno’s East Chicago style pizza. The group enjoyed an amazing meal and touring the building which included wall graffiti.

After a satisfying dinner it was time to walk off the calories on the Magnificent Mile – and burn some $$$ too shopping.

After an enjoyable swim at the hotel’s indoor pool. it was time to get some much needed rest.
