    Millennium Park

    266 reviews

    The best parts are the summers and the 10 weeks (wed-sat) of free concerts, mainly classical music, outside under the lights and stars of the big city. Dont forget to bring your chairs, a blanket, and a picnic....BYOB.

    Willis Tower

    205 reviews

    An awful tourist trap, but worth stopping by for an overpriced cocktail if only to enjoy the fabulous view over the city skyline.

    Wrigley Field

    165 reviews

    Wrigley Field is a great place to watch baseball, the atmosphere is pretty intense especially when the fans get excited! Although it is pricey to buy food and drinks, especially when it's very low quality. They also don't seem to be too tight on who gets through In the sense that drunk people will be falling all over the place ...

    Art Institute of Chicago

    146 reviews

    I love this museum! There are so many great art pieces and it so easy to navigate. Few tips don’t need to buy tickets in advance just get them when you get there. If you want to buy another other Chicago attractions you can buy there also. Plan on spending a couple of hours there exploring the grounds. Make sure ...

    John Hancock Center

    119 reviews

    In my opinion, the best bar in Chicago. A little over priced but worth ever penny. The view is just as spectacular as the Willis Tower but a more mature and relaxing environment.

    John G. Shedd Aquarium

    100 reviews

    One of the most well put together aquariums that I've ever visited! The set up takes you around the World's oceans and freshwater systems, introducing water life along the way. FYI- there are lockers in the basement for you to keep your valuables in while you walk around for a minimal fee! Loved it!

    Museum of Science and Industry

    84 reviews

    My favourite museum as of yet! With the most interactive displays I've ever seen, this museum keeps everyone engaged from the moment you enter the building to when you leave. I would recommend blocking off an entire day for visiting, as you'll hardly be able to tear yourself away.

    New York has 5th Avenue. LA has Rodeo Drive. Chicago has the Mag Mile. Those with money to spend will have plenty of choices, with shops like Burberry, Armani and Tiffany's lining the street. Start at the Old Water Tower building then work your way south towards the river. Once you've shopped your heart out, you can take a well ...

    Field Museum

    The Field Museum has a very comprehensive collection. Sue, the most complete T-Rex skeleton is the first thing you see when you walk in the doors. There are various exhibits on animals and Indian tribes and a cool exhibit on mummies.

    Clarence Buckingham Fountain

    59 reviews

    A must see if you're visiting Chicago. One can't leave the city until they've taken a picture with the fountain in the background. So gorgeous, and an easy place to take millions of pictures to send home.

    Lake Michigan

    58 reviews

    I called my mom the first time I saw Chicago's lake front. "Mom... there's an OCEAN in the MIDDLE of the CITY!" It's been true love ever since. No matter the season, I find peace, unity and inspiration in and along Lake Michigan. If you miss walking the lakefront, you've missed the whole thing.

    Second City

    47 reviews

    Comedy and Chicago go hand in hand thanks to The Second City. From its December 1959 opening in Old Town, it’s been the benchmark for improv as we know it—and a rite of passage for aspiring comics. John Belushi and Gilda Radner cut their teeth here, and veteran alumni like Tina Fey still grace the stage today. Although the brand ...
