IC's Whirlwind Tour of the American Midwest

Recommended Posts

Recently, I took a trip to Mammoth Cave, Mom's hometown of Stanton (KY), Cincinnati, Canton, Cleveland, and Chicago.

Here is the first part of my photo series:

Sadly, due to contractual agreements with the inductees, no photos are allowed of the actual exhibits.

That's it for now. I'll post my Chicago pics and some other pictures of cities we passed through later. What do you think of these?

Cool photos, IC! All places to which I've been. Some have changed a little. Some haven't changed at all. It's nice to see things from an up-to-date view though :-) Can't wait to take my kids back to Cleveland and the Rock some day!

Looking forward to your Chi-Town pics.

Thanks for the photos. Cleveland has done a great job with the waterfront. I really enjoyed visiting there several years ago...

Regarding the football HOF... While distinctive, I get a chuckle each time I see it. It's a pretty silly looking building in so many ways...

The Football Hall of Fame looks like a gigantic orange juicer, but I take it you were talking about the Rock and Roll one.
