Instead of going somewhere tropical for break, my boyfriend Jake and I decided to head home and save some money. Luckily, home for me is a short train ride from downtown Chicago! We decided to purchase City Passes and be tourists for the week. If you haven't heard of a City Pass- check out the website here! It's a great way to visit cities like Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and so many more while saving money.
The first place we visited was the Shedd Aquarium. I haven't been here since I was on an elementary school field trip, so it's been quite some time. It was so cool to see the different fish, penguins, sharks, dolphins, and so much more. If you're ever bored in Chicago, I suggest going here. It's like you step foot into a whole new world!
We decided that we'll visit somewhere tropical once we both start our big kid jobs and have actual salaries. I can't wait for that day but until then, I'm going to make the most out of being a poor college student!
