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.

*Food spots*:
Holy Taco
Pequod’s Pizza
The breakfast house
Ann Sather
Giordanos (a must!)
