My first one!

In April we were lucky enough to get to fly around Chicago in an airplane… and on Sunday we toured Chicago in a helicopter! And you can get much closer to buildings in a helicopter than an airplane*!
We could actually see people on the observation deck at the Hancock!
Have you ever gone on a helicopter ride before?
Like I said, it was my first time, but Steven had been before. But we both thought it was fantastic and had a ton of fun. Now I want to do it again! We got to see so many familiar sights up close:
Okay, President Obama’s House is not a “familiar” sight.
I think my favorite part was when we went out to the lakefront and flew really low along Lake Shore Drive. The perspective on the city was like no other!
And the ride was so smooth. I think this is my new preferred form of transportation. Ha ha ha.
If you could tour a city by helicopter which city would you choose?
You guys know me – NYC – and I am going to be there in a few weeks… hmm. Or maybe Rome, since I used to live there and am very familiar with it – I think part of the excitement is seeing things you recognize!
*I think we had to stay 2000 feet away from the buildings in the airplane.
