chicago: Chicago is just a train ride away from Battle Creek - 11/26/12 06:08 AM
At this time of year, now that the holiday season of shopping has officially begun, it is always fun to go to great places. Downtown Chicago is a wonderful place to go visit for a shopping spree. One can get on a train right in downtown Battle Creek, and be in downtown Chicago for as little as $35 using Amtrak. The downtown area of Chicago has all kinds of shopping wonders for any holiday shopping extremist. There is also the beautiful architecture to marvel at as well. Here is a photo of the lego store and other buildings that I took (5 comments)

Battle Creek, Michigan is just a short train ride away from Chicago. Many people who want to go into the big city from this area take the Amtrak which comes right into downtown. The cost is roughly around $70 round trip, and it the travel time is just a little under two hours each way. The train takes you right into downtown Chicago, where you can enjoy shopping, the Navy Pier or catch a Cub's game at Wrigley Field. The hotels and restaurants in Chicago make for a great way to spend a day or weekend.

As a local Realtor, I try to stay connected to what is popular in the community. There is also the convenient Amtrak train system as well, which stops in Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, Niles and Michigan City on the way to Chicago. Recently I took (0 comments)

I have been at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Leadership Summit 2010 in Chicago the since Wednesday, August 4th. The NAR Leadership Summit 2010 in Chicago has been not only educational, informative, and inspiring, it has also been quite entertaining! We toured the Chicago Art Institute last night when we arrived, and today we have been hearing great speakers preparing the Realtor Associations incoming Presidents for 2011 all day.
