6-day Chicago itinerary -- feedback wanted

Jump to last reply

Am trying to put together a sightseeing itinerary of six full days in Chicago, and would like feedback that is not of the "stop and smell the roses" type. Am thinking the last two days may be a little light. Will order days according to when these attractions are open. If there's anything I'm glaringly missing, please let me know.

One day

-morning Loop sculpture walk
-Art Institute of Chicago
-Millenium Park/Grant Park
-Chicago Fed Money Museum
-Sears Tower

Another day

-Adler Planetarium
-Shedd Aquarium
-Field Museum of Natural History

Yet another day (North of the Loop)

-Lincoln Park
-Museum of Contemporary Art
-Newberry Library
-City Gallery
-McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum
-Navy Pier
-Hancock Observatory

And another day (Hyde Park)

-Museum of Science and Industry
-Robie House
-Oriental Institute Museum
-Rockefeller Memorial Chapel
-Smart Museum of Art

Still another day

-South Michigan Avenue walk (includes Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago ArchiCenter, Auditorium Building and Theater, Chicago Public Library, Fine Arts Building, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Spertus Museum)

One more day (Oak Park)

-Unity Temple
-Frank Lloyd Wright House and Museum
-Hemingway Birthplace
-Hemingway Museum

Many thanks.
