  1. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    The Chicago Architecture Institute offers a huge range of tours of Chicago, but I chose one of the most popular; the boat tour of the Chicago river. I would really recommend this tour. The tour takes in the buildings along the river and the…
  2. Average priced "Nightlife & Entertainment" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    As a snark, the official name of the bar is Legends, and Buddy Guy is the legend who owns it. Buddy Guy’s Legends is a Blues Bar in downtown Chicago, and I love it. It was the one consistent recommendation I got from the concierge in my hot…
  3. Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Actually, I think the one I went to was on a different street, but it's part of the same chain. Gino’s is a good place to eat the legendary deep dish Chicago pizza. It is a dark restaurant with a nice bar to eat at and a large seating area, d…
  4. Average priced "Nightlife & Entertainment" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    The House of Blues is a chain of Blues themed restaurants and music venues. I’m reviewing the one in Chicago. The Chicago House of Blues is in a very cool modernist building in Marina City (the ones like giant corncobs in the sky), easily reached…
  5. Ridiculously Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    My, my - this place is HUGE. Really Huge. It's enormous. I stayed here for a conference. The rooms are large and airy, although the air conditioning was struggling a little with the heat. The bathroom is fine, and the toiletries are nice. T…
  6. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Millennium Park is a lovely park in Chicago, between the Loop and the Lake. It is the world’s largest roof garden (at the moment), as it is on top of railway tracks and a car park. There are a number of separate reasons to go to Millennium P…
  7. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Chicago is a good city for just walking about in, not least because of the quality of the public art that you can see in the streets. In many cities, public art consists of some bloke you’ve never heard of sitting on a horse,celebrating a battle w…
  8. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    The Willis Tower is more usually known as the Sear’s Tower, but has been rented out to the Willis Group. Most Chicagoans continue to call it the Sear’s tower but in the interests of you finding the right website, I’ll use the new words! …
  9. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    The Art Institute of Chicago is a brilliant art gallery. It is perhaps best known for one of the best collections of impressionist paintings outside France, and it would be a reasonably impressive museum on those grounds alone. There are a huge var…
  10. Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Weber’s Grill is a barbecue themed restaurant in downtown Chicago, and it is quite nice. The food is lovely and comes in huge portion sizes, and the waitress was great. This was especially nice because there were about 15 of us and we wanted to s…
  11. Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Chicago, Illinois, USA
    I really liked this hotel. It's just about a block from the Chicago River, which makes it really central, so the location is good. The room was lovely. It was a nice size, and the goodies in the bathroom were Aveda and really great quality. The v…
