Today, for the upcoming video “10 things you need to know about Chicago”, which will be similar to our other “10 things” videos, I took a lot of shots of trains. The train here in Chicago, known as the subway, CTA and ‘L’, is an efficient service and makes getting around the city.
From here I travelled out to one of the city’s most popular beaches, North Ave Beach. It’s right beside the neighbourhood Lincoln Park. There’s a great vibe there on a Sunday. People were playing volleyball, relaxing in the bar there, and enjoying the panoramic views of the skyline. Make sure to visit when here.
From here I walked back up Lincoln Ave to the centre of Lincoln Park. It’s a trendy neighbourhood but one popular with students also. Before jumping on the train and coming back to HI Chicago which is where I am now, I dropped into Kingston Mines. It’s a blues club that I keep hearing things about. Looking forward to filming there later on.
