Congress Plaza Hotel - race host hotel - very historic!
|It's too bad you can't see the detail - though click on the photo to enlarge it - those mosaics are made up of individual 1/2 inch tiles - B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!|
Navy Pier - Friday evening/night (perfect time to go - watch the sunset then see the city's lights)
3-D model of the loop . . . at this scale, a human would be the size of a flea . . .We used this to 'see' the route we would be running for the half - VERY cool. Also, every 15 minutes the lighting on the model simulated the lighting/shadows of the summer solstice!
Willis' Tower (formerly Sear's Tower)
We waited 90 minutes just to get tickets - while we waited a storm had come into the city (BOO!)
Water Tower (mall)
Downtown Loop Parks
