Teaching you to embrace today while making yourself a millionaire!

I wish I would have understood how easy it is to become a millionaire by starting to save small amounts of money when I was younger...

I feel compelled to share the simple concepts you can apply today....

Chicago Architecture!

You can't help but notice the stunning skyline of Chicago. For an exciting time you can take a 60 or 90 minute architectural cruise down the Chicago River. Our entertaining (and experienced) guide recounted Chicago's rise from the Great Fire of 1871 to becoming the cradle of modern architecture. It is a fast paced tour and I promise - you'll be impressed at what you learn while having fun. There are several lines you can choose from. We used Shoreline Sightseeing. Travel Tip - Check to see if your cruise line offers additional specials. We were able to purchase the sunset lake tour for an additional $6.

After being surrounded by spectacular buildings we were eager to go to the top of one. So our favorite architect - Harry - picked the 100 story Hancock Building. However, you just can't go inside and roam around. You need a reason to be there like going to the Observatory. Very cool if you have the time and money. Bargain Deal - If you just want to see what the world looks like from the almost top of a skyscraper you can take the elevator for free to the bar on the 96th floor. For the price of a drink ($7 and up) you can have one of the best views of your life.

Free Souvenir Tip- In our drinks, the swizzle stick was a replica of the Hancock Tower! I asked our server if we could have several more as souvenirs. Now when Harry has a party he has the Hancock Building as a skewer in the snack tray. Makes for great conversation.

Next week - On to Milwaukee
Until then - I'm looking for fun and food in your city......................
