Stroll Around Garfield Park and Conservatory on a Sunny Winter Day in Chicago
Despite winter being cold and harsh, you are not forced to stay inside and wait for spring! On warmer or sunnier days, there are beautiful areas to stroll around and breathe in the fresh winter air. At the "Garfield Park Conservatory", you can leave the indoor gardens for a quick stroll around the outside garden. Once you're cold, just hop back in the warm and dry "Desert House" and explore the rest of the area.
The University of Chicago Campus in Hyde Park is Like Transporting Yourself to Europe
Chicago (to me) is one of the most distinctly "American" cities I've ever been to. The giant silver skyscrapers, wide busy metropolitan streets, a crazy sports culture, hot dogs, you name it - Chicago has it. This is why visiting the "University of Chicago" campus in Hyde Park was such a profound experience - it didn't feel American to me at all! The layout and style of this campus almost has a gothic medieval feel with the architecture, courtyards, and ivy growing along the buildings. Check out my coming videos for more of the University of Chicago campus!
