Head South Down The River

Posted on Saturday, August 27, 2016

Living in New York has motivated me to constantly explore and find new places. It has honestly become my absolute favorite thing to do! When I came home to Chicago I couldn't wait to go on some adventures. I had heard from many friends that the architecture boat tour was "amazing" so I decided to take the tour with Hannah to show her more of Chicago. We ended up sitting in the very front of the boat and had a killer view! As we coasted down the river, the guide pointed to this beautiful park in Chinatown that I had never heard of. I was shocked to say the least. I have lived in Chicago my whole life and never knew about this hidden gem. Almost simultaneously Hannah and I both said "OMG we are so going there tomorrow!" So the next day we hopped on the red line and strolled through Chinatown to find the "secret park". When arriving to Ping Tom Memorial Park I instantly felt transported to a different place (perhaps China? I've never been). The park is stunning! If you are ever in Chinatown definitely make a stop at Ping Tom Park! Enjoy the rest of summer!
