Some like to rest so having a nice hotel and snacks are good, some are just so hungry that a big dinner is perfect. We tried a chicago pizza place near base lumiarie, something like that, called in the order picked it up and went to the hotel to enjoy it. Getting a new phone is also popular if they dont have one to take. But definitely food!
Thanks so much for these tips! Yes, just looking to enjoy the time together and, of course, wat! How much time did you have before your sailor had to be back to RCTC?
We had fri and sat ( check in and outs each day) and meet him at the airport with a few extras. Much more time than we thought, we went into Chicago to sight see on sat but eating was still top priority. :)
