Our family has passed through Chicago many times on our summer journeys, but we have never stayed their to check it out. This summer, we will rectify that.
Here is our itinerary…
Friday, June 28th – Drive from Amarillo, Texas to Fort Worth, Texas. We will be meeting up with and staying overnight with a good friend who lives there.
Saturday, June 29th – Board Amtrak’s Texas Eagle #22
Sunday, June 30th – Arrive at Chicago’s Union Station
Monday, July 1st – Thursday, July 4th – Exploring Chicago
Friday, July 5th – Board Amtrak’s Texas Eagle #21
Saturday, July 6th – Arrive back in Fort Worth and drive home to Amarillo
This is a train we have never taken for a long distance as a family. We have ridden it a couple of time between Fort Worth and Dallas just for fun. I also rode it when I was a Senior in High School to visit my brothers in college. (Alan, you remember picking me up in the middle of the night?)
I try to make at least daily posts which consist mostly of pictures. If you would like to receive an email when I make a new post, use the subscribe form in the right hand column of this page.
And, for the fourth year in a row, I wanted to publically thank our good friend James who will once again be house sitting for us. James, I have a few surprises in store for you this year!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy sharing our trip with us. I am looking forward to it!
