An architecture boat tour, a trip to the top of the Willis Tower, and dinner at any of a dozen great places depending on food likes...

You might check out the Weiner Circle for a late night hotdog. Itís a fun place where they yell insults at you. Might be fun for a teen and itís a bit of an institution. But maybe more of a college kid destination as well.

If you go to the Sears Tower (is it the Hancock now?), I can only tell you my colleagues wanted to go so we waited like two hours to get to the top. So, express pass, or just pass.

We also took a downtown walking tour that was really fun. Millennium Park is fun and we had a tour guide of that place too.

Anyway, had a lot of fun but it was a professional conference so not exactly a family with teen weekend.

And the Bean at Millenium Park.

And Navy Pier as the have a few cool rides and souvenir shopping. (The alternative is the Maginificent Mile for shopping which is more 5th Avenue)

Those are the 3 things a 16 yr old will most like and want to do.
