What was your favorite adventure this summer?

  • Becky: Loyola Beach was my favorite adventure, I got go knee-deep into the water. At Benihana, the hibachi grill was cool and I liked yakisoba noodles. I liked seeing the Barbie movie at the AMC Theatre in Evanston.
  • Abby: I liked the Riverwalk, the boat tour, and the federal bank.
  • Katy: I loved the Chicago Shakespeare Theater seeing Beauty and the Beast.
  • Pam: I liked the Botanic Gardens.
  • Kristina: Benihana!
  • Erich: Benihana!

Where did you find people to be more disability-aware and mindful?

  • Becky: I found the Riverwalk to be disability-aware because I didn’t know how to catch a fish, and they really helped me.
  • Abby: The movie theatre because they had an elevator and automatic doors.
  • Katy: Navy Pier at the play because they had someone work there in a motorized wheelchair like me.

Are there any stories and adventures you want to share?

  • Becky: I enjoyed all the summer outings we went to.
  • Abby: I liked learning about the history of the buildings on the boat tour.
  • Katy: It was great going to my first play. I really enjoyed it and wouldn’t mind returning.
  • Pam: We got to go to the Riverwalk and learn about the fish, and I learned a lot. I saw so many people, and that was fun. I saw people of all ages.
  • Kristina: Benihana was good. They treated me well, and having them cook in front of you was fun.
  • Erich: The food at Benihana was good.
