Fantastic trip -Chicago

 

10月20日-10月23日,我跟我的志愿者伙伴Tiya去芝加哥旅行。为了节约旅行成本,我们乘坐的是Amtrak 旅游观光列车,这是我第一次在美坐火车旅行。Amtrak火车是旅游观光列车,走的都是风景美丽的地方。我在Fargo上车,我的小伙伴从 St.cloud上车,我们在火车上汇合,乘坐至终点站芝加哥。

Oct 20th-23th,I travel with my  volunteer partner Tiya to Chicago. To save money, we take the Amtrak sightseeing train. This is the first time I take a train in the US.The sightseeing train goes along the beautiful sightseeing tour road.I  went aboard at Fargo and my friend at St.cloud. We converge at the train and take the train to Chicago.

我们从凌晨的2点左右上车,一直到隔天下午的3点左右到达芝加哥,时长13个小时。我们就到达了著名的中央车站。

We go aboard from 2 a.m. and arrived Chicago at 3 p.m. It takes 13 hours. We arrived at  famous the Chicago union station.

在芝加哥自由行是特别适合的,因为公共交通很发达。但首先推荐一定要购买cta的交通卡。在很多地方都能看到购买这种卡的机子,因为我们只旅行3天,所以我们就买了3天卡。在三天内,可以无限制的乘坐地铁和巴士,非常划算。我推荐还要购买city pass,city pass 是芝加哥著名景点的套票,在芝加哥任意一个著名景点都可以购买,需要98刀。但是如果在我国万能的某宝上购买价格要实惠很多。

I highly recommend traveler choose freedom travel at Chicago. Because Chicago has popular public transportation. However first you need to buy Cta card. You can see many machines which selling this card. We only have 3days so we got three-day card. During these three days,we can take the subway and bus as much as we can. I also recommend the city pass card  of Chicago.It can save time and money.You can buy it at any attraction.It only  need 98 dollars.
