    Enjoy the view that you'd get from the observation deck but do it with a cocktail. A really lovely bar offering one of the best views in the city. Yes, it is touristy but it really is special.

    Wrigley Field

    1060 West Addison Street, Chicago, IL
    161 reviews

    One of the most incredible ball parks in America. Just being in the neighborhood to hear the roar of the crowd is a treat. Even if you don't like baseball, a sunny afternoon in the bleacher seats is a Chicago highlight.

    318 West Cermak Avenue, Chicago, IL 60616-1916

    Founded in 1983, Chinatown is a fantastic example of a culturally progressive neighborhood. Though people from all over the world visit- the locals manage to keep the energy, and vitality of the Asian culture alive with no apologies. A walk through Chinatown can be an educational history lesson on the customs of the Chinese American community.

    If you like learning, you'll LOVE the Adler. With one of the best skyline views of Chicago, this museum is as visually beautiful as it is mind-enriching. Check out "Alder After Dark" for a unique cocktail hour held here on the third Thursday of every month.

    This is a stunning aquarium. You could almost be forgiven for thinking that Lake Michigan is actually an ocean with big windows placed here. A nice place to visit and a gorgeous event space.

    Goodman Theatre

    Chicago has a spectacular theater scene that rivals NY and this this is the premier theater in the city. Less commercial than Broadway. What theater should be.

    wow!! This is a must ride when your visiting Navy Pier! Its gotta be since its been here since the worlds fair lol. It doesnt stop so you get on the ride while it slowly turns.

    Michigan Avenue Bridge

    North Michigan Avenue and East Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601
    32 reviews

    I love all the bridges in Chicago because they merge beauty, photo opps and function all in one. If you see people trying to take a picture and you're not in a hurry- offer to take it. It's what a local would do.

    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.

    Lincoln Park Zoo

    83 reviews

    I'm not a fan of zoos. That said, if you are going to visit one, this is a relatively nice one. Conveniently located in a gorgeous park. I hate to see the animals living in captivity but this zoo is more humane than most and has a wide variety of animals.

    I really enjoy the Museum of Science and Industry. I think that adults without kids often overlook it but they really shouldn't. There's so much to see, do and learn, it makes a great date idea for your spouse your friends or your group. They always have free days for residents of Illinois so check the website to see if ...

    Fans of historic architecture won't want to miss a walk down the Magnificent Mile, a prominent section of Michigan Avenue.
