Things to do in the City with Dogs: Strolling Down Michigan Avenue

Almost every time I go on vacation I marvel at the people who are lucky enough to be residents of that city. I imagine that if I lived there I would spend every weekend having pier picnics or lounging in famous gardens.
The funny thing is, we live in a pretty amazing city also. And a lot of people spend a lot of money to experience the things we take for granted. 
We spend a lot of our time just out with the pups walking, and even though we live a mere 2 miles from the heart of downtown, we rarely go. So we went. 
I don't think people are used to seeing large dogs downtown because a lot of people would look at us like we were walking camels. They also asked what kinds of dogs they were.
As our dogs are older its not as easy to do the 2 miles there and back, so we found 2 other easy ways to get downtown with our pups.
We discovered the app Spothero which has helped us find cheaper downtown parking. We used this to get downtown for the St Patrick's Day festivities where we found parking for only $10, which is amazing since downtown parking is normally $20-40.
We have also learned how to take taxi's with our pups and we wrote more about it here. 
Has anyone else been venturing on any new walks lately?

I've never considered taking Bella into downtown Chicago until I discovered your blog. Now that I've viewed all the wonderful pictures of Mr B. and Ms M. with the beautiful city sites in the back ground, I want to visit all the dog friendly places you talk about.

I was just in Chicago last weekend and I kept my eyes peeled for Mrs. M and Mr. B the whole time! Only I would fangirl over seeing two dogs that I know from the internet.
