The first leg of our journey to Barcelona begins right here in our own backyard with the objective of being a tourist in our own city. Being from the suburbs of Chicago, and moving to Chicago within the past year, I never actually had the opportunity of experiencing Chicago as a tourist so this was a perfect opportunity! I currently live in the McKinley Park neighborhood, which is a few miles west of Chinatown where I began my project. Since Chicago is such a dense and populated city I decided to ride my bike from each attraction site to the other to get the full experience.
