    Talking Best Places to visit in Chicago?

    Hi, I've been to Chicago once when I was young. But I don't remember much of the trip. I want to go to Chicago again. Which places do you think I should visit?

    Navy Pier is amazing! The Ferris Wheel is so much fun and you get a great view of the city. The Sears tower is amazing as well. I think they've renamed it now, but it's really cool. Have fun!

    Alright, Chicago is probably my favorite city in the world. I've only been three or four times, but I have a rather simple way to do things!

    First of all, I stay in this Holiday Inn and park my car at a garage beside it. It stays there the entire time and I walk to do everything! If you're going to take any of the rest of my advice, be warned. It involves a lot of walking. If you're not okay with that, be okay with paying a ton for parking or getting taxis.

    Navy Pier and Willis Tower, as were suggested! If you like pizza, eat at Pizzeria Uno. It's, like, a block from that hotel I mentioned, in between it and Navy Pier. It's seriously amazing, I make a point to go every time I'm in the city. I crave it like mad sometimes, then get really sad because I can't go. Haha.

    Millennium Park is also a must-do, even if just for the fun of taking reflective pictures in The Bean. Trust me, it's fun.

    If you want more ideas and don't want to spend a ton, maybe try checking out this link!

    You should definitely visit Millenium Park and check out Cloud Gate, a piece of urban installation art that looks like a huge reflective bean. I know it sounds bizarre, but it's really fascinating to walk around and take pictures of. The park is also a great urban space in general. I would also visit the Museum of Science and Industry and the Art Institute. Even if you're not a science/art buff, both museums are really well put together.

    Chicago Must See Sights And Attractions

    The Art Institute is amazing, but you probably won't be able to get through the whole thing. It is gigantic.
    Navy Pier is beautiful - but very windy - in the late afternoon. I remember there being amusement park rides there, but I'm not sure whether they are still there. If so, you could ride the Ferris Wheel while looking out over the pier.
    If you're there in the summer, you can go to the beach by Lake Michigan.
    Millennium Park is awesome.
    There is a moderately sized contemporary art museum downtown - if I remember correctly, it's close to one of the old water towers.

    In terms of restaurants, Frontera is a contemporary Mexican restaurant started by Rick Bayless. The food and drinks are amazing.
    You definitely will not have a shortage of bars to go to.
    Pannenkoekan cafe has an amazing breakfast for the morning after.

    Definitely don't forget to see some music - even if you have to brave some seriously bad weather.

    Hey ihopper!

    You should pay the John Hancock Center a visit! It offers you an amazing view over the entire city. At night it looks astonishing! If i recall correctly, it should have about 100-stories and at the top (at the observatory), they also give you a little bit of info on Chicago!

    Places To Visit In Chicago

    I just made one of my best trips to Chicago ever! Here's what you absolutely have to visit - The Navy Pier, around the evening time, where you can see the magnificent fireworks. Then do try the John Hancock tower. This one has a much better view to offer than the Willis tower. You will be able to see the Great Michigan Lake from one side, and the Chicago business district with its architectural splendors on the other. Do try to eat all you can at the famous Giordano's. The Magnificent Mile is a nice walk in Central Chicago. Then we have the Millenium Park too!
