    What to do in Chicago?

    I'm thinking of visiting Chicago and don't really know what's there. I've been to NYC many times, is anything similar? What do you do when you go to Chicago? Thanks.

    Re: What to do in Chicago?

    I'd also be interested in some suggestions for the Chicago area. My daughter will be taking a field trip there in several months and I had planned to go along as a chaperone. I'd like to know what things I should make the time to check out while in the area, especially since I've never been anywhere near Chicago before.

    Re: What to do in Chicago?

    There are so many things to do in Chicago. If you like the theatre, there is The Chicago Theatre, and the Goodman Theatre to name a few. Also there are Museums like Richard H Driehaus , Oriental Institute. They is also the Shedd Aquarium and the Lincoln Park Zoo, so many places you can go and see and have fun. There is also the Millennium Park and the Navy Pier, the Art Institute. If you like shopping you can try Michigan Avenue, a large stretch of stores including Magnificent Mile, you will not know where to start because there are so many to choose from. If you like listening to the blues, try Kingston Mines. Some other good places are The Chicago Cultural Center and the Willis Tower and the Buckingham Fountain. These are just a few of the things you can do in Chicago there are so many more. If you like hanging around water to cool off there is Lake Michigan and they have lots of beaches, like North Avenue Beach, Oak Street Beach to name a couple. There are also a lot of parks, like Jackson Park and Abbott Park. They even have an ice Rink, it's Midway Plaisance Ice Rink! For a night on the town they have some nice comedy clubs like The Second city , and if you are looking for a nice place to go with a romantic view of the city try Signature Lounge. I hope this helped you out a little there are so many more things you can do in Chicago, it is really fun to visit Chicago,never be bored there. There is something for everybody to do...:

    Re: What to do in Chicago?

    Thank you so much for the reply. I'd enjoy going to one of the theatres to see a show and if I go in the summer I would probably want to visit one of the beaches. I've never seen Lake Michigan before so it's great that there are beaches there. If I went, I would go shopping and do a lot of sight seeing at some of the museums you listed. Chicago sounds better than I thought!

    When I visited Chicago, I went downtown during the Summer. They had an amusement park festival going on by the water which I liked very much. You can also go to their aquarium if you choose to or if you have children that is a place you can show them. They also have live music playing there during the Summer time as well. I really enjoyed my time when I was there even though I didn't get to see every single attraction but what I did witness was enough to make me plan another trip back. Chicago's downtown is huge and it is so much to do there! I think it's way bigger than Atlanta's, Charlotte's and Detroit's downtown.

    Every trip to Chicago should include a date with Sue. Holding court in The Field Museum’s grand Stanley Field Hall, the remarkable Sue is the world’s largest, most complete, and best-preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex. Beyond The Field’s extensive rock and fossil collections, visitors can journey through 4 billion years of life on Earth in the Evolving Planet exhibit and marvel over precious stones — from their rough beginnings to sparkling jewelry — in the Grainger Hall of Gems.
