Default What to do in Chicago?

Will be in Chicago later this week. I've only been once, a long time ago. Staying downtown. Appreciate any suggestions on things to see/do. I'll be there solo on a work trip but will have some free time. Already checked, and the Cubs are out of town.

Enjoy a stuffed pizza at so many that are killer. Geno's east is close to you. Very good. The boat trips are cool..

I'd devote my spare time to trying to be safe and get the hell out as soon as possible.

The Sox have a four game stretch with the Rangers. There's another option.

You have to have a Chicago dog at some point. I think there is a Portillo's restaurant downtown

I go every year for work. It is a pretty cool town. Chances are you will be pretty safe if you are staying downtown. The bar the top of the John Hancock building is pretty cool. Great views of the city and the lake. The architectural boat tour is fun if you enjoy that type of thing. Great restaurants are everywhere, make reservations now. The wife and I like to go down to the river walk to have a few drinks and people watch.
