The Great Lakes USA Tour – Discovering the Real America
I have just had the most fantastic trip of my life across mid-west America… I started in Chicago and travelled to the towns of Rochford, Galena, Moline, Springfield, Indianapolis and finally back for 4 days to Chicago. I went hot air ballooning over the great Mississippi River, I drove an IndyCar at the famed racing capital of the world – the Indy circuit in Indianapolis, Indiana. I took a helicopter ride over Chicago, visited the most amazing theatres and museums which included a Dinosaur called Jane and million year old fossils.. We departed Chicago on Interstate 90 for the lovely town of Rochford – the highlights there are the Frank Llyod Wright Laurent House – www.laurenthouse.com – Contact Susan Meyers/Barnes – The 12th Century style Japanese Gardens ranked as one of the top Japanese gardens in North America – www.andersongardens.org – The amazing Coronado theatre is a MUST SEE – For anyone who would like a ready-made itinerary, I am happy to share it here with you – just email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org ….. I can safely say that this was a trip of a lifetime…. If you want to experience the REAL America and the incredible city of Chicago then follow in my footsteps and you’ll have a wonderful experience…..
