NFT: Looking for something to do in Chicago

tbonfig : 5/15/2019 12:12 pm
I'm here on business and have some of the afternoon available, today. Any recommendations on something to do?

Does not need to be super-touristy (boat tours, etc.). Could just be a cool place to walk around.

I'm a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile (not sure what that is).
Do the architectual boat cruise

It's very interesting and highly enjoyable. I loved it.

Go take a tour of Wrigley (or go to a game)

Go to Au Cheval and have a mind-blowing burger

Go to the chicago athletic association hotel - there is a rooftop bar called Cindys with great views of the park.

Enjoy!

Thanks crackerjack

I did the boat tour a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Wrigley would be tough today and I’m not sure if they’re even playing.

I may go try out Au Cheval. Thanks!

Maybe sing twist and shout on a parade float?

Take the one by the architectural foundation. Great guides who really know the subject. Do Millenium Park & go to Lou Malnati for deep dish pizzas. They’re all over the city
If you are info fine food
