Day at Logan Square

Chicago still has a few sunny days left in it. 

Around Thanksgiving we survived the first Chicago snow. It was a rude awakening of what the next 5 months will be like, but it is nothing that I haven't already experienced in college when walking to classes.

We have been lucky with some nice weather recently (who expected 60 degrees in December?!) To make the most of it, my friends and I decided to explore the Logan Square area of Chicago. It is a bit west of our normal stomping grounds so we weren't too familiar with the area. 

Being the morning, we had to stop for coffee. We went to Intelligentsia coffee & tea, which is a very hip coffee bar.  The names of the beans were a bit intimidating (I really only know Starbucks roasts). I got a simple pour over because I didn't understand what any of the other fancy concoctions were. Needless to say, if you love a good cup of coffee you should check it out. 

We then ventured over to the Illinois Centennial Memorial column, also known as the Logan Square monument. 

The monument was built in 1918 stands in the middle of Logan Square to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Illinois' Statehood. 

It is in a pretty park-like area with views of downtown Chicago. The area is very trendy restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, and the Logan theatre.

And among all of this, there is a giant 'Aloha' movie billboard that overlooks the square (sadly I do not have a picture to show it) that provides the perfect amount of irony and ridiculousness. 

We then walked down some of the streets that had quaint apartments.

I definitely enjoy being able to spend time outside. I walk around a lot in the city (because I don't have a car) and weather is a pretty important factor for my commutes. It has played a huge part in acclimating to the city.

 I can't believe it is almost the new year! So many more exciting adventures await as I get to know Chicago.
