In the 3-4 days you'll be here, you'll just skim the surface. There are many things to do in Chicago during the winter months. I don't know your interests, but there are great museums; The Art Institute, The Museum of Contemporary Art, The Museum of Science and Industy, The Shedd Aquarium and The Adler Planetarium to name the major ones. There are 2 professional hockey teams, NFL football, arena football and the basketball. A lot of shopping, thousands of restaurants and architectural tours throughtout the city, as well as the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio tour in Oak Park (accessible via public transportation). There are numerous interesting neighborhoods some ethnic (Little Village/Pilsen (Mexican) Chinatown, Greektown, Little Italy and Devon Avenue (Indian). There are tons of live music acts playing nightly, 4 a.m. nightclubs, and many bars. It's worth venturing outside of downtown to check out Andersonville, Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, Bucktown and Wicker Park. All are easily accessible via the subway and are not far from downtown. Be sure to check out the periodicals Time Out Chicago and The Chicago Reader. They're both weeklys that provide extensive listings of thing to do, restaurants, live music, theater, movies, etc.

If you are there in late November then there is always shopping on Michigan Ave. There you should be able to find something for everyone on your list. There are even some deals to be had if you look in the right place.

Other then that there are many museums in the area and the Shedd Aquarium. The Museum of Science and Industry has many interactive displays. Some would say for children, I think more for the child at heart. Everyone can have fun. There is also the Field Museum that has natural history and usually a special traveling featured gallery.

You could always try to take in a Bulls, Bears, or Blackhawks game. Or, you could go to a play at one of the many great theaters in town.

The Mueseum of Science and Industry is definitely worth a visit, as are the architecture boat tours... sounds dull, but good to laze an afternoon away on :)
