Christmas in Chicago
...from the journals of CW Bryant.

 Ramble down the railroad track with CW on Amtrack's Empire Builder from Portland, Oregon to Chicago, Illinois. Read about the sites along one of the most scenic railroad routes across the U.S. Then tour Chicago's Magnificent Mile, Lake Shore Drive, The Field Museum and much, more...



A full moon shines down on the wide and swift Mississippi river--one of
the many spectacular sights found along Amtrak's Empire Builder route.


 Check out the view from our hotel room--it's Chicago and Lake Michigan. Chicago is great fun!






 Lots of holiday hustle and bustle along Chicago's
Magnificent Mile! What a fun place to shop.


"Hey, check out this Brontosaurus. Just one of the many awesome
attractions at The Field Museum in Chicago.

CW's Journal takes you on an adventure through the eyes of a 15 year old--packed full
of fun and exciting activities from many locales. The vacation details at the end of the journal offer the practical information you'll need to plan your own trip.

Camping the Great Outdoors
...ideas to consider

   "Since that first camping trip, all of our trips have been only partially planned, with itineraries set more as ideas than as fixed schedules.  We usually take each day one at a time, and do whatever feels right for that particular day.  Slowing down to smell the roses has never been so sweet as when we travel with our two kids!"  -- David, Westminster, MD

 Take it from David, there's a time to plan and a time to take one day at a time.
