List: The Ultimate Chicago Tourist Travel Guide

    [“All the museums in Chicago are wonderful but if you don\\’t have much time the Shedd Aquarium and the Art Institute are a must”, “Don\\’t go to Michael Jordan\\’s Steakhouse on Michigan Avenue for dinner instead go underneath Michigan Avenue to Billy Goat Tavern for a famous Cheezborger”, “Don\\’t go to Rock N\\’ Roll McDonalds, go right across the street to Portillo\\’s for a Chicago style hot dog and the best chocolate cake”, “During the summer, the Riverwalk is a must and make sure to enjoy a glass of wine at City Winery, it\\’s great people and boat watching”,
  • For a great place to take some photos of the skyline, lake, or beach head to Olive Park next to Navy Pier
  • “For the best deep dish pizza the only place you should go is Lou Malnati\\’s or Pequods”, “For the best shopping experience you can\\’t go wrong with Michigan Avenue anytime of the year”, “Garrett\\’s Popcorn is ok but getting a donut at Stan\\’s Donuts and Coffee is better”, “If you are interested in doing a bus tour skip the Ghost Tour and do the Gangster Tour.
