Real ID for travel - MissTiger91
I saw online that in Oct. 2020 everyone will have to have a Real ID for domestic travel. The info goes on to say that your ID must have a black or gold star to be compliant. I'm in Mississippi and several sources are saying MS's IDs are compliant, however mine doesn't have the star. I renewed it in ...

Fun, non-typical Chicago activities - MissTiger91
Please give me some ideas for fun, non-touristy Chicago activities. We'll be there in mid-March and would like to do stuff other than the usual Bean, Navy Pier, Mag Mile etc since we've done all of that on previous trips. We'll have our 17-y/o son with us and we all enjoy museums, tours, history, et...
