Going to Chicago!! - May 29th 2014, 12:31 PM

So I'm heading off to Chicago next week for the summer to work (and play.) I've never even been to the States before, but I'd love to hear if anyone has any tips or recommendations about visiting/staying in the place

Chicago is fun. You might want to visit some museums or shop. I always loved doing both of those! There's a pier that's pretty cool too. Oh, and you have to see the big shiny bean looking thing. There are plenty of restaurants to visit, although I can't remember half of their names. Walking around downtown can be fun. Oh, and you have to drive by or see the lake; it's so pretty. And lastly, watch out for traffic, especially at certain times during the day. I hope that you have fun!

I just googled the bean and I found out that it's a sculpture called "Cloud Gate" and it's located in Millennium Park.

I don't really have a good intuition of Chicago but everyone I know that lives there likes it a lot. So I hope you have a good time! It's supposed to be a pretty exciting place to visit.

I've been to Chicago a ton of times. Go and see Lake Michigan along with the museums. It's a lot of fun there and I'll know you like it. Also, welcome to the states!

Have fun!

I have never been to Chicago before, so I researched some locations that you could visit, besides the shiny bean thing. Here's a link that you could have a look at: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio..._Illinois.html

Thanks so much guys....got here at 5 in the morning our time after getting up at 6am,so didn't take in a lot but I have never seen buildings so tall,agh!!(new York is going to be overwhelming to this little Irish girl haha!!) and apparently the giant bean is close to our building so we'll be exploring that when we go out foraging for breakfast in a couple of hours...

The giant shiny bean is amazing, as is the planetarium, the pier, the Millenium park and America in general. <3
