We say goodby to Leslie and Toronto and head out on the open road for Chicago.
We’re eager to get to Chicago, so it’s a full day of driving without any side trips, exploring etc., just drive and the normal road trip stops for food, gas, and oh yeah US Customs. Here is our route, expressways and Interstate all the way.
Seems we didn’t take hardly any photos on this part of the drive, just going over the bridge from Sarnia into the USA and Customs.
The GPS gets it done, right to the Staybridge Suites which will be our “home” base for the next few days as we explore the Windy City. We’re staying a moderate way from downtown and plan to take a hotel shuttle to the Metra train station near the hotel for the trip downtown to the heart of Chicago.
The room is awesome for a longer stay and it turns out that the breakfasts and evening snacks are great too!
We pick up some serious Chicago pizza from a near by Giordano’s restaurant and watch a little TV before turning in for the night.
