Carlos. You saved my butt!! Although I picked round trip when I ordered my tickets it only gave me a ticket to Chicago. It is $78. If you go I will provide you with a map of things to do if you have never been to Chicago. I am going to spend a few bucks up there. Art Institute tickets are $18 and I would like to go on a Chicago boat skyline tour. Also I may use taxis. I plan to just sit some time during the day and shoot street people. If you decide to drop out that is ok. Otherwise see you.

I am a member of the Peoria Camera Club and have invited any in my who want to ride along to come also. We can get seats together. There are many places to shoot within walking distance of Union Station. Ill see if I can come up with a map of sites. I really would like to try street photography. But it is a big city and there is
Millenium Park, Grant Park, Pritzkers Place, Buckingham Fountain and the Chicago Art Institute (Admission price) all within walking distance.

I am going to Chicago on June 30 on Amtrak from the station in Normal for a day of shooting. This is rain or shine. You Are welcome to come along if you wish. Although I am not planning an itinerary or keeping a list of attendees I would be delighted to have you or anyone you know go with me. We depart Normal at 7:31 AM and arrive at Union Station at 10 AM. We depart Union Station at 7 PM and arrive back at Normal at 9:14 PM. The cost of a round trip ticket is $34 and may be purchased in advance

Train fare to Chicago is ridiculously cheap. Like $35 round trip. We dont even need an itinerary. There is so much to shoot in Chicago within walking distance of Union Station you could accidentally trip your shutter and get a keeper. There is street photography and architecture, The Buckingham fountain, Grant Park, Chicago Art Institute and on and on. Trains leave Normal Illinois early in the morning and depart to Normal at 5-6 PM.
