Saturday, the big event was to go to the Memorial Day Parade. I've been traveling in a few cities on Holidays before and thought it would be fun to see how they celebrate. I wasn't disappointed. The parade was a long one. With many different bands and military groups past and future (ROTC) represented.
I don't think I saw or did everything there is to do in Chicago. But I sure did have a great experience. I would highly recommend Downtown Chicago for a Spring or Fall long weekend. I think I'd skip it in the winter for sure!
