Owner's description:
In the Heart of Chicago: 1 BR condo. Just 1 ? miles from downtown. No need for a car. You can walk, take a short bus or subway ride (the "el" train) to the Loop(downtown Chicago). So much to see, you will have a great time and never run out of things to do. 1 BR condo close to Lake Michigan and Magnificent Mile (huge shopping street with all major fashion stores). Walk to Lake Michigan, beach, nightlife, Chicago History Museum, Lincoln Park Zoo (free). Walk to organic farmer’s market on Weds and Sat. Great museums, theater, comedy clubs, etc. See the new Millennium Park, Navy Pier (theater, boat tours, fireworks, etc.), free music festivals. Grocery store just 1 block away. Several buses to downtown stop ? block from bldg. I often walk. It is a pleasant walk with restaurants, outdoor cafes, nightclubs with live music (1/2 mile away). Walk to observation deck/restaurant in John Hancock bldg. Free concerts, films and more at the Chicago Cultural Center. See tourist info from the city. http://egov.cityofchicago.org/city/ webportal/home.do and select "Exploring Chicago". Condo is in an elevator building. Faces west for view of sunsets. Overlooks a huge courtyard with trees, shrubs, flowers and park benches. Kitchen with new cabinets and granite countertop. No pets. 2 Sleep number beds- push together for California King (extra long) or separate for 2 separate beds. Amenities: 24 hr. doorman, laundry, dry cleaner, roof deck, 2 outdoor pools, gym. Would need to make advanced arrangements to use the latter two. For 2009 I am interested in going anywhere in Europe from the North (Scandinavia) to South (Greece) and all countries in between, but am open to other countries and US states as well. I am very flexible. I am retired so can travel at anytime. I taught at a university. I am open to traveling anytime, anywhere.
