    The modern art collection is impressive - Hopper's Nighthawk's, Warhol, J. Koons, etc. Plan your visit, as you could easily spend a few days exploring the museum's vast and rich collection. No cafes were open on site.

    Toasted cheese sandwich for 7.50. Two slices of limp damp not-quite-toast, one slice of processed bright yellow soft sludge pretending to be cheese. The whole thing (production cost 35 cents max) completely revolting, actually inedible, markup 22 times. How could such a fine museum make such a bad decision?

    On the day of our visit, there was no line due to being cloudy “with no visibility”. We decided to go up anyway since we had the city pass. To our surprise, we had a good view for a rainy day. I bought the pictures and video because I wanted to capture the whole experience, but it was not worth it for the $$.

    Not sure you can visit Chicago for the first time without getting a selfie here.
    Busy spot but a quick and easy stop when wandering through Millennium Park.

    When visiting Chicago, Millenium Park is simply a must do. From the Bean, to fountains and event centers it’s one of the best places to go in all the city.

    Wanting to see dinosaurs and Egyptian life, then this museum is a must. We especially liked the extra color exhibit. Typical museum.

    This ballpark has got a long history and they tell you on this tour with pride.
    The guided tour takes you to many places in Wrigley Field and I could recommend this tour.

    Adult admission is $ 30 each.
    The tour takes about 90 minutes.

    I went there on saturday evening and there were a lot of people there, took half an hour waiting for the check-out at Zara would recommend to come on weekdays or in the morning to enjoy all the shopping venues without being too crowded

    Such a relaxing and beautiful area to walk! Very clean with many different restaurants and breweries/wineries on the walk. Gorgeous views. A bit crowded, but we didn't have any trouble getting a table during different times of the day.

    We found this little gem while searching trip advisor for attractions. Being a free zoo we didn't know what to expect. The exhibits were very elaborate and well kept. The park was extremely clean. They had/have an amazing array of different animals and mammals. Very glad we visited.

    The architecture and content in this former library is worth the visit. Don't miss the restored glass domes, staircases, and interesting Civil War exhibit

    This was a wonderful surprise find! The house is painstakingly restored and full of Art Deco objects and Tiffany glass. Walking around in it feels like being in an episode of your favorite historical movie or tv show. Even the guest bathrooms have period accurate fixtures! This is an experience! Have already recommend it to everyone we’ve met since.

    I love conservatories and try to go whenever a city has one. This one was quite nice and a welcome reprieve from multiple days spent in the city. Not crowded at all. Parts of it could've used better signage as it was a little confusing to get around. Overall, if you have limited time this wouldn't be top of my list but we enjoyed it.

    We enjoyed the aquarium. The only downsides were that we were hoping for more big fish. We’ve been at other aquariums with the walk through tunnels where the sharks swim over and beside you, but Shedd doesn’t have that. Also, it’s kind of hard to navigate. Overall, we had fun though!

    Renting bikes from the city bike share and biking almost the entire length of this trail was the highlight of our trip here. The bike lanes definitely get crowded during rush hour but it was so cool to see locals actually getting to use bike lanes in a functional way (Boston, take note). The views were beautiful.
