I'll be visiting Chicago from 9-24 through 9-30. I'm looking for recommendations on where to stay, hopefully near rail, places to eat, and suggestions on things to do besides what's covered in CityPass. Thanks.
Sooooo... my parents will visiting loverly Chicago... unfortunately, I just noticed that they won't fly in May 17th, but APRIL 17th. In two days. I'm a dumb. Anyway, I need some advice on what we should check out while they're here. I have a couple ideas, but I haven't done much of Chicago's touristy stuff since I moved in several years ago. What are some big obvious things that are actually worth the hype? Any hidden gems you like? They'll be staying downtown, but we'll have cars available so travel isn't a problem. I have mobility issues, so bonus if it's sitting down/limited standing.
Catch: New Year's on a Wednesday. I don't have the surrounding days off. [more inside]
