Eric's brother is temporarily living in Farmington. Never been on my list of places to visit but it is really beautiful and different. In Farmington we can go hiking, white water rafting, take a train trip and visit some Native American museums and ruins.
It will cost quiet a bit more to fly out to NM and we will have to rent a car. But we won't have to pay for a hotel and our meals will be cheaper.
I have always wanted to go to Chicago. I want to stay in a hotel and ride a taxi in a big city. I want to go to Millennium Park, take an architectural boat tour, go to the top of the John Hancock building, eat lots of hot dogs and pizza, visit some museums, shop, go to Wrigley Field.
Chicago will be cheap on the flight but the hotel won't be. We aren't really fine food people, I could be happy eating pizza and hot dogs the whole trip, but 3 meals a day will add up.
So have you ever been to Chicago or Farmington? Which would you choose? Opinions please even if you have never been to either!
