I will be flying in O'Hare on the 14th and flying out on the 21st.
Most of my time will be in the Chicago. I am also going to drive to St. Louis and stay there for a day or two
My plan is to see Adlai Stevenson’s home, the Climatron in St Louis, Bucky Fuller’s home in Carbondale and another geodesic dome in Wood River, Illinois. Yankees play Cubs while I am there and it looks impossible to get tickets. Are there tours of Wrigley?
So, in both cities, I'll be looking for good food (both restaurants and iconic local hangouts) , coffeehouses that have spirit, cool independent bookstores (full of codrescu, anti-walker texts, bucky fuller and sexual comics)- interesting museums, neighborhoods and other have to see spots. Also architecture, lots of architecture.
I am also looking for good places to stay.
