Vacation in Chicago was fantastic. It's a city full of life, history & architecture. We had a wonderful time in this gem of a city which was full of many things to do. This is a city which nicknames it's famous shopping area as the "Magnificent Mile" which is no exaggeration at all. The architecture, alone, was rich and full of history. From Art Deco to modern design, Chicago is a city that has it all. If you're a fan of museums, aquariums and planetariums, you'll love the "Museum Campus" on the waterfront, The Shedd Aquarium, The Field Museum & the Adler Planetarium. All three of these venues were easy to get to and walkable...my favourite part! Walking through the Millennium Park left me awestruck at the beauty and functionality of it. Not only were there tourists but many Chicagoans using the park during lunch, breaks and days off. As a tourist, I felt perfectly safe and thoroughly enjoyed it. Here's a short list of things you really should see if you plan to visit!
Must Sees (in no particular order):
- Millennium Park
- Shedd Aquarium
- Field Museum
- Navy Pier - the ferris wheel!
- Take a ride on a tall ship or a fast ride on a Seadog!
- Bicycle or Segway Tours - a great way to learn/ see the city
- If you want to shop - take a nice walk along the Magnificent Mile
