First time visiting Chicago, but I wanted to share a few things to do (and food spots!).
Things to do in Chicago:
*Cloud Gate* – famous Bean with a great city backdrop.
*Jay Pritzker Pavilion* – Directly behind the bean.
*Navy Pier* – Lake view with city in background. Also found here is the Ferris wheel.
*Lincoln Park Zoo* – Free admission, need I say more! Great spot to stroll around.
*Wrigley Field* – If you can, catch a baseball game. I’m not much of a sports fanatic, in general, but going to a game is just a great experience.
*Art Institute of Chicago* – Plenty of art to see! It takes a few hours to view it all. I did 2 hours and still didn’t see it all!
*Anita Dee Charter* – A sunset cruise. I found them through Groupon.
*360 Chicago* – Scenic views of Chicago. This one has the Tilt attraction, unfortunately it wasn’t working when I visited.
*SkyDeck Chicago* – Another great spot for scenic views of Chicago. This one has the glass box that you can step into! A great souvenir to get are the pictures taken from the box.
We bought the Chicago Explorer pass (through Groupon). They offer a 3-attractions from a list of 20, or 5-attraction passes.

Giordanos (a must!)
