The Adler Planetarium … & Navy Pier … Chicago …

Adler Panorama
Hey everyone … I’m back with another post from our time in Chicago … after we visited the SKYDECK we headed back to the Museum district where we had been to the SHEDD AQUARIUM and this time visited the Adler Planetarium …

The Planetarium was interesting but it was very much geared at children and a younger audience in its displays …

We also had tickets to see a couple of the shows they were showing that day which were both interesting and I especially liked the one about the stars and constellations … its always been something I was interested in growing up …

The food at the Planetarium was actually much better than we’d expected too … and the views weren’t half bad either …

All in all we both enjoyed the Planetarium but I think it’s definitely a place to go with children … Anyway after we were done we headed back into the city centre and after wandering around a bit we stopped at the Magnolia Bakery for a coffee and cake …

It was funny cause we sat down to eat … Perry was already well into his coffee and cake by the time I got started … although I noticed my Latte didn’t taste very much of coffee … I asked Perry if his had any coffee in it … and when we checked both our cups were just steamed milk … somehow the shots of coffee never made it in … the staff were really apologetic about it and fixed it quickly … we just had a little laugh over it after …

_MG_6591-1 _MG_6594-1 _MG_6599-1 _MG_6610-1Once we’d eaten we headed over to Navy Pier … it was easy to get there by bus and it was nice to just walk around the pier in the afternoon … it was quite a warm day and breeze over the lake made it really pleasant to be outside …

We sat on the benches at the end of the pier for a bit … listening to the music and enjoying the view … eventually we both realised how tired we were and decided to start heading back before one of us fell asleep in the sunshine …
