One is old-school Chicago and the other is an amazing new age comedy show. It’s also been around for 50 years, but has the BEST comedy show I’ve ever seen. Many famous people like Tina Fey and Mike Meyers got their start here.
(7) Millenium Park
Go check out Cloud Gate aka The Bean and all of the different old and new art installations.
(8) The Navy Pier
It’s very touristy, but fun to walk around and sit by the water.
(9) Lake Michigan is right on the edge of the city.
There’s even beaches….right in the city…what?!
(10) The Willis Tour
It used to be the Sears Tower…don’t get it twisted. It’s tall and has a great view from the top.
(11) There is art everywhere.
Big sculptures and murals are all over the city! My favorite pieces are in Millennium Park, but you can find art in a bunch of hidden places. The Marilyn statue is a traveling structure and is now in New Jersey. Unfortunately, you won’t see her in Chicago anymore.
(12) The rooftop restaurants and bars!
There are a million rooftops in Chicago and all are awesome. A few I’ve been to and loved are Zed451, ROOF at the Wit, and the Godfrey Rooftop Lounge. All great, but especially great when it’s summer in the city!
