Chicago Trip Day 2 Dubuque, IA to Wisconsin & Chicago, IL

In the days leading up to our trip, I had read an article online about places to visit in the United States. The place it listed for Iowa was the Field of Dreams Movie Site. When I looked on the map, I realized it was only 30 minutes west of Dubuque where we were staying so I told Andrew about it. He decided it would be fun to see so we headed that direction Saturday morning. We were so glad we did! It was such a fun stop!


More rolling hills and corn fields with cute red barns and silos. :)




It was free to get in and then we bought a couple cute souvenirs for our curio cabinet. :)


 

 


 There was a fun little community game being played while we were there. :)

We were lucky because the corn was at the perfect height!

Then it was time to head back to Chicago, but we did it by way of Wisconsin so Andrew could get some Wisconsin cheese curds. ;) He says they are the best!



Andrew got a "cheesewich" at a gas station we stopped at. :)






For lunch, we stopped at Steak 'n Shake!


Once we got back to Chicago, we returned our rental car and took the hotel's shuttle to our hotel. We checked in and then decided to take the train into the city. We've been to Chicago 3 times now and we love it there! We always stay right by the train station so it's easy to get into the city, but also to the airport. :)





Our first stop in Chicago was Wrigley Field! The Cubs weren't playing in Chicago the weekend we were there, but it was fun to see the stadium. :)



It was getting later in the evening by then, but we did make one last stop at Sprinkles Cupcakes before we headed back to our hotel and to dinner. :)




Of course, we had to have deep dish pizza and Giordano's was just around the corner from our hotel. Also, it was much less crowded then the ones in the city. ;)
