Day 3: Chicago in 24 hours

Day three arrived with a beautiful sunny morning. The weather had turned in Chicago and we had planned to do a lot during the day.
We started off in the Loop visiting the Chicago river, the Chicago theater and the famous bean.
After that we headed over to Museum Campus and took a bite of the Chicago style hot dog. Warning! Ketchup is strictly prohibited on them, at some places you might even have to dance for it.
Back in the city we took a lookout on the 103rd floor of Willis tower, formerly known as Sears tower. With its 442 meters it claimed the title of the tallest building in the US until recently, when the One WTC in New York has been topped out.
On our way to the Navy Pier, it was time to get some shrimps at a Bubba Gump restaurant. This restaurant chain was inspired by the movie Forrest Gump, and is a huge success in the US.
To grab some dessert and yet another magnificent view of the city, we climbed to the Signature Lounge on the 95th floor of the Hancock tower. It’s a well known secret that it’s not worth to pay for the observatory here: you can get a small bite in the lounge and just enjoy the view.
To finish up for the day, we booked 2 tickets for a stand-up comedy show in the Second City. It was a kind of improvisation night and, unexpectedly, we understood most of the jokes:)
