People who know the Chicago area....

Do you think it's possible to see the Art Museum *and* the Natural History Museum in one day?

Because we're thinking of coming in to Chicago a day early this November to see some stuff in Chicago. We want to do the art museum, but I also want to do the Natural History Museum and see Sue, because I've been wanting to do that for about the past 9 years and it hasn't happened yet.

But I don't know if it's possible to do both on the same day? Would it be better to come in Wednesday night instead of early Thursday because we'd need the whole day? And is it easy to get there from the airport area via public transportation?

It's definitely possible to do both in one day, but if you have pretty much the whole day. The art museum and the Field Museum are relatively close, which is good!

The Blue Line of the El will take you right downtown from the airport, and the system is very easy to use.

Cool, that's good to know. I haven't talked about this with Rachel yet or anything, so we'll have to see, but I want to see the big T-Rex, darn it! LOL!

For me, it's not that much of a problem because it's under an hour flight to Chicago, and flights start leaving here at 6AM. I think last time I was in Chicago by about 8AM. But Rachel might not be able to get in until later, so that's why I was thinking it would maybe be better to get in late Wednesday night after work.

I thought I read there was some kind of stop for the train right by the hotel, but I don't remember seeing one. I guess we could have the shuttle take us back to the hotel and get on the El from there...

Yeah, it's a really cool museum!! Definitely check it out. :) And the Chicago Art Institute is one of my favorite places in the world. :)

I wanna do both! Just let me know what you think is best and I'll see what I can do. I don't think I can fly out any earlier than Thursday though, just so I won't miss too many classes.

Actually, it might be better for me to stay until Tuesday. Could we stay Monday and do something then?

AND HI! I was going to call you sometime to say hi, but I'm pretty sure any time I'm free to talk you are at work.
