A Guide to The Field Museum in Chicago

A Guide to The Field Museum in Chicago

I love Natural History Museums. So going to The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago was high on my must-see list. This museum was constructed for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and houses some truly unique exhibits, including the Tsavo Lions and Sue the T. Rex. My roommate, Gina, and I made the 3-hour trip down to Chicago to see all it had to offer. After driving through tolls (ugh), downtown Chicago (double ugh), and paying an exorbitant amount…

A Guide to Wyalusing State Park, WI

A Guide to Wyalusing State Park, WI

I’m not the sort of person who likes to go out alone. If I’m going shopping, I bring a friend, or if there is a park I really want to see, I bring a friend.

My only experience with solo driving is in my home state of Wisconsin with drive times no longer than three hours. Therefore, when…

Road Trip: Lighthouses of Lake Winnebago

Road Trip: Lighthouses of Lake Winnebago

I love lighthouses. There is something about the lore of the lighthouse industry that strikes a cord within me. I’ve been to many of the lighthouses in Wisconsin both on Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, but there is another lake in Wisconsin that boosts lights. Lake Winnebago is the largest lake completely in Wisconsin at 10 miles across and 30 miles long and has several small lighthouses on its shores. I was in the small town of New London, northwest…
