Now, it is a 91-acre nature park with strolling paths, awesome fishing and camping, and a spectacular view of the Chicago Skyline. There is a field house with staff to answer questions and there is also a discovery tour of the island available. Another aspect about the island is the concert venue, the First Merit Bank Pavilion. This is a temporary structure, which is put in place during the summer and seats about 30,000 people for mainstream concerts. Ticket prices for these concerts are pricey, but there are many free park events for families year round so be sure to check the website when you plan to be in town.

My trip to Baton Rouge, Louisiana was an amazing experience since I was able to meet my mother in law and that my boyfriend was able to meet his mother since he was 8. The drive to Louisiana was fill with woods and empty roads but we were able to make it there safely. Once we were able to catch up on everything throughout the years, we started to head to New Orleans to visit the aquarium. During the drive to New Orleans, the weather got crazy and the streets begun to flood. People were walking through knee length water on Bourbon Street and all the buildings looked so pretty since most of them were vintage and had a voodoo touch to them.
