Okay so Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal--no one said that was off the list! However, any place south of DC is def off the list. We would like to avoid hot weather but realize that even Chicago and Toronto will be warm and maybe humid.
Turns out we can use miles to fly to Chicago or Toronto for free. Haven't checked Montreal. So that cuts the cost way down. I think we're leaning to Chicago. Well, I am anyway. It has a lot going on. And they have architectural tours that sound cool. And since it's in our pool of potential places to move, we should probably check it out. [Btw, Pittsburgh was in there for the Warhol Museum, FLW houses and other interesting architecture, and because we've never been but heard good things.]
For Toronto I'm surprised no one mentioned the Bata Shoe Museum. A shoe museum people--come on!
