Chicago Shopping Trip

How does taking the Amtrak to Chicago to do a little Christmas shopping sound?  Well, I have never done this before, but it sounded like a fun idea.  We can meet at the Amtrak station at around 7:00 or 7:30 a.m.  Tickets are around $25.00 one way.  We can shop til our hearts content and then take the train back home.  Who's with me?

    I will be leaving in around 20 minutes. I should be at the train station by 7:15 or so. I will be a very bundled up person in a blue coat.

    Changed my mind. My mom will kill me if I don't get some good presents this year

    Love the idea and would love to do this but It's just going to be way to cold for me to even think about trekking around Chicago.

    Hello everyone!

    Well, in less than a week, we will be in Chicago Christmas shopping! The Amtrak in Milwaukee leaves at 8:05 so if you are planning on coming with us at that time, please make sure that you get there in time to purchase a ticket. I think this will be a very fun day, but please keep in mind that I am not a travel agent ( I am definitely not an expert on Chicago, I am leaving the expertise up to Jason) and I do not plan on making it my responsibility to keep track of everyone. We are all adults. If some of you want to go off on your own and shop, feel free. If you do not feel comfortable going on your own, stay with the group. I am leaving it up to you to be responsible enough to get yourselves home at the end of the day. If the weather is cold, we may have to plan on taking some cabs or busses to get to some places.

    Sounds like a blast! Sadly I can't make it.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to catch the metra in Kenosha?

    November 29, 2013

    • Allison R.

      I'm not sure, but I'm not going to drive all the way to Kenosha when I can just drive downtown to catch the train.

      You can check the Metra website for the exact ticket price. But I think the weekend pass is 7 or 8 bucks, round trip.

      November 30, 2013

  • Roxane

    Do you guys have any idea what time you'll get to Chicago?
    I'll need to take Metra if I can get there at the same time.

    October 5, 2013

    • Allison R.

      According to the schedule, the train leaves Milwaukee at 8:05 and will be there in an hour and 30 minutes, so around 9:30, 9:45.

      October 9, 2013

    • Roxane

      Thanks!

      October 9, 2013

  • Lisa M.

    I think we should actually plan a trip to Nuremberg!!! :)

    September 23, 2013

  • Jason

    Love this idea! We should also swing by the Christkindl Market in Daley Plaza while we're there. :)

  • W A.

    I sent you a note to your AOL address about the train schedule. 8:30 may not work as the closest trains would be either at 8 am or 11am. I'd be happy to come with you all (unless future Wiffy has something planned for us)

    September 22, 2013

    • Allison R.

      Okay, I changed the time to a little earlier.
