We (husband and I) traveled to Chicago to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Our flight was great and the cab ride to the hotel smooth and easy. We’re staying at the Drake Hotel in downtown. The hotel opened on New Year’s Eve 1920 and is still lovely. The Drake was the first hotel in Chicago to offer air conditioning in every room. Not that we need air conditioning in Chicago. It is incredibly cold with wind chills often well below zero. We’ve walked almost everywhere, as do most Chicago residents. We’ve had rain, snow and wind. We knew it would be cold so we were ready with proper clothing and boots.
