I went to Chicago last summer and here are some of my recommendations about things to see:

1) Millennium Park - located in downtown, it has amazing architecture

and landscrape designs. There's a stainless steel pedestrian bridge and

all sorts of interesting sculptures. I read that there's also free

classical music concerts. Stop by Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park if

you're going on a romantic stroll. 2) Art Institute of Chicago - it has a great collection. You probably won't have time to see it all. 3) Magnificent Mile - It's actually North Michigan Ave. and it's the upscale shopping district of Chicago.

4) 96th Floor Signature Lounge - Forget about the Sears Tower and enjoy

the view here instead. It's located in the John Hancock Center (3rd

tallest building in Chicago) and offers a much better atmosphere. The

food is expensive so I recommend going on a clear night and buying a

cocktail instead. 5)! That was my favorite

part. Make sure you get some Chicago pizza and try out the numerous

ethnic cuisines they have there.

One thing I didn't do but I heard is great is taking a boat tour.

They tell you about Chicago's rich architectural history. I know it

sounds boring, but my friends thought it was great.

Well, boat tours are definitely NOT boring, trust me... It's AWESOME instead. I recommend a tour that contains both river and the lake trip. Usually they sell tickets separately, but some of them e.g. Mercury Tours make it a single ticket. Skyline view from the lake is worth to see!
