Road Trip Day 4 - Chicago, IL to Milwaukee, WI

Sunday morning we took our hotel shuttle back to the airport and rented a car for our overnight trip to Wisconsin!


Our first stop was just north of Chicago at the Home Alone house! Growing up my siblings and I LOVED this movie. We watched it all year long and I still love it to this day!




There have been a few changes to the house, but it's pretty much the same. :)

From there, we continued on to Wisconsin, but just before we crossed over the state line, we passed Six Flags Great America and stopped at the second Rainforest Cafe in Illinois - Gurnee Mills!






I smashed a penny at this Rainforest Cafe to remember. ;)


Just over the Wisconsin state line, we saw a sign for a free Jelly Belly warehouse tour so we decided to stop. Now we've done both Jelly Belly tours in the US: Pleasant Prairie, WI and Fairfield, CA. :)







 

After the tour, we were each given a free sample. :)



One of the main reason we wanted to visit Wisconsin was for the cheese! Andrew had looked up several cheese places online and the ones we settled on were Tim & Tom's Cheese, which ended up being Andrew's favorite place and Mars Cheese Castle.





 



Samples!


I thought all the wax shapes were really fun. :)
