I now realize why Illinois gun laws are so restrictive. It’s because the entire state is a work zone and politicians are concerned that road rage will get out of control. As we explored northeast Illinois, we couldn’t go two miles without a lane closure, stoppage, or uneven pavement.
So everywhere we wanted to go was a bit delayed, which would be frustrating if we were on a schedule, but we’re not.
When we finally made it to Chicago, we enjoyed strolling around and seeing the sites around Millennium Park. The Bean was a big hit

Note to the in-laws whose car we are driving – traffic violations are photo enforced. If you receive mailings from the State of Illinois authorities, it may have something to do with those red lights I ran. Just let me know.
Update: we parked in Chicago using Spothero. For $10 we reserved a spot 2 blocks from the Park at the Palmer House parking garage. I don’t know how they do it but it was an unexpected convenience. Many major cities have Spothero, check it out.
