4. Well, my first suggestion would have been to go see Marshall Field's windows, but Marshall Field's
is no more. :cry: Macy's may still do the windows, but I don't know. You gotta go to Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue is fun for a walk...go to the old Water Tower , it's beautiful. Water Tower (the new one) is great this time of the year. The Museums are awesome, if you have time. The Shedd Aquarium is great too. I'd tell you to have a nice lunch at Eli's, but it's gone now too! :cry: Take a ride on the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier...The city is absolutely BEAUTIFUL this time of year! Have fun! :hi:

6. Geno's East
best pan pizza and pasta in the world!

Water Tower Place
Hancock Building observation deck gives the best views

Skip Macys...they destroyed what was once a world class department store.

8. instead of going to the observation deck at the hancock...
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 10:20 PM by QuestionAll
go to the bar on the 95th, and have a drink while looking out...go at sundown and stay past dark for the best views.

(and...umm...it's Gino's east.)

9. The Art Institute, the Observation Deck on the John Hancock bldg.,
walk through Millenium Park (unless it's too cold), afternoon tea at The Drake, Shedd Aquarium, exhibits at The Field Museum (they are fantastic).

Off the top of my head. I *heart* Chicago.
