My Ultimate Family Vacation
We don't take a lot of vacations. With four kids in school and involved in sports and a husband that works two jobs, we often are just too busy or money is too tight to take a vacation. When we do take them, it's always to the beach. While this is a great trip, I have always dreamed of a city getaway to Chicago for our family. First of all, my children have never flown before, so our trip would begin at the airport. That in itself would be a huge adventure. As someone who loves to fly, I think it would be a blast to share that experience with my kids. And, as a family that lives in a small suburban area, a big city like Chicago would be so exciting for us.

There are so many cool things to see and do in Chicago. We would stay in a nice luxury hotel right smack in the heart of downtown Chicago. Visiting Adler Planetarium, The Shedd Aquarium, The Art Institute of Chicago, and Navy Pier are just a few of the attractions we would enjoy. We would also have to check out the Willis Tower Skydeck (formerly known as the Sears Tower). I'm sure my kids would be mesmerized with the terrific views from the 103rd floor Sky Ledge. And, of course, we would partake in some shopping along the Magnificent Mile.

Another really neat aspect of our dream Chicago getaway would be the actual way we get around the city. Living in our suburban town, driving is about the only practical mode of transportation. In Chicago, we could take the "L" Trains, grab a taxi, or even walk throughout the city. We could also use the service of the River Bus to get from place to place via water. How fun is that!

A Chicago city getaway is the perfect idea of my ultimate family vacation. City life, with all of its unique sights and sounds, would be a whole new experience for my kids. I know it would be a wonderful trip that we would never forget!

Where would your ultimate family vacation take you? I would love to hear about it...
