Eating and Drinking: I ate at two great restaurants, but the better was in the centre, where they have wonderful specialities, delicious tender steak with simple but well-matched side dishes. The downside is that we had to book two months in advance and the bill was high because we allowed ourselves a bottle of good wine, but I would do it again

Not to miss: Don't miss: a bike ride on the shores of Lake Michigan. Food to try: the famous Chicago pizza (2 layers of dough with filling). You should visit because it's an open-air architecture museum. Experience how friendly and helpful the people are with tourists. Finally, shopping, shopping, shopping!!

Not to miss:  If in Downtown Chicago be sure to visit Oak Steet Beach. Right at the northern end of Michigan Ave with all its High End Shopping called the Magnificant Mile...A Pleasent Surprise with a Tiki Bar Also on the Beach. To View Chicago in all its glory. Make sure you take a Boat ride on Lake Michigan. You can find boat tours from the Chicago River at Michigan Ave On either side of the river. But be sure it is not Just the 1 hour trip or less But the 90 minute on...or it only goes up and down the river not Lake. The Achitecual one also is Only on the River...Do the Lake trip..you won't be ... More disappointed. Also you can Get Dinner Cruise Trips and Tall Mask Sailing Ship rides and others..from Navy Pier. Also a Walk on this tourist suprise is very nice. If you cannot do a Boat Ride Take a taxi or bus to the Planetarium Museum. It has that Iconic Chicago Skyline World Renouned View. shooting you into Lake Michigan but still on land. Also a Ride from Downtown North along Chicagos Gold Coast going past its front yard of Beaches, Harbors and its gold coast highrise living. Museums...Of course Chicago has some of the Best. For a Skycraper top view the John Hancock Center View Is Tops...viewing both Downtown the beaches up the shoreline and Lake Michigan...

Not to miss:  One of the foremost attractions in Chicago is the Navy Pier which consists of restaurants, shops, museums and exhibitions and is ideal for tourists. Also, the Ferris wheel located in Grant Park, is one of the most toured landmarks in the city.
The Magnificent Mile, with an assortment of big shopping malls and mega stores, is a haven for shoppers.
The Sears Tower offers a spectacular view from the top and has become the symbol of the city. On busy days, people often have to get into queue to reach the sky deck, which offers a view of the city.
Art Chicago is a ... More massive art festival which features over 3000 artists with many related events held at various museums and galleries. It also hosts the Stray Show which is a separate event for amateur artists.

General opinion:  I find Chicago most neighborhoods expecially Downtown to be among the Cleanest of Our Large cities,certianly compared to NYC. It has just in a 2 or 3 mile area downtown. Some of the Worlds Great archetecture from each American boom period modern with classics.with Beaches at one end to the north looking like your are in Florida in summer of course.Harbors to the east and Museums respected worldwide. Great Hotels and Restaruants and Clean. Flowers planted showing its green and purhaps the Best shopping street high end in the US. Beaty with modern clean and flowers to walk among.Chicago has blossemed ... More in the last 30yrs and renewed itself. It has become a not just business destination but vacation for the family as travel magazines make light of. It did overcome the period of decay some other cities have not. Of course not all is perfect.
