    So many museums: Field Museum, Aquarium, two zoos (one is free!), Planetarium. Lots of bike paths, so if you go when it's warm you can do lots of fun sight seeing. Awesome music scene. Also a lot of cool plays in the area (check out the Neo-Futurists at Foster and Ashland). And the food! So many good restaurants (including the Heartland Cafe at 7000 N Glenwood and a really yummy crepe place right by the Neo-Futurists). If you go around Christmas, I think Macy's has carried on the Marshall Field's tradition of amazing window displays at their store downtown.

    I Chicago.

    I live about 45 min from Chicago There is a TON to do! Check out this website:
    Chicago Attractions - Things To Do, Places To Go, Amusement Parks, Lakefront Parks, Sightseeing Tours, Zoos
    Personally, I suggest the museums, Navy Pier, and checking out the wonderful Holiday window displays!

    There is a Blue Man Group show in Chicago and you can see it for FREE if you usher! All you have to do is hand out programs before the show and pick up some trash afterwards (nothing too gross). You just call the box office and ask if they still have usher spots open. Best thing ever.

    Ahhh we're moving outside of Chicago next year and I'm super stoked!!!! I can't wait. I am just not looking forward to the winter weather. I love my island climate.
