I enjoyed part of my summer going back home to Chicago. Chicago is a wonderful place for historical architecture, tasty eats, beautiful lake front beaches, and so much more. I visited the old and new library. I saw a very spirited live show at the famous Second City Theater.  I visited the famous Art Institute of Chicago and caught a stimulating Gordon Parks exhibit. I took in the sites downtown and experienced so many changes the city has done for tourists. I really enjoyed going to the 63rd street beach to reminisce and see young children finally getting a chance to enjoy hot weather. Before leaving, I experienced several Black owned restaurants, yum!

Women of substance who love to experience life love to travel.

Chicago boasts many wonderful restaurants. This French eatery was wonderful for authentic French cuisine.
