A few questions for an upcoming Chicago trip

Jump to last reply

There will be 4 adults traveling to Chicago for a long weekend in August. We are driving from Michigan but want to park the car in one of the cheaper lots for the weekend, so essentially we will not have a car.

Hotel is booked (Hyatt on Wacker) and hot dog places have been scoped out and will be hit at lunch time Friday and before we leave town on Sunday afternoon.

My questions are about dining and sight seeing.
Dining: We have to do deep dish pizza one day (DH insists). We would like to keep dinner to around $20 per person (not a huge budget in Chicago, I know). Also, our hotel doesn't have breakfast, so maybe a nice breakfast/brunch spot? Near the hotel would be great.

Sight Seeing - which museum is the best, that is also centrally located? Is Navy Pier just a junky touristy trap? What about the fireworks on Saturdays? Are they over in a blink of an eye or are they pretty decent? Also, we would like to do at least 1 walking tour. Interests are architecture and history/culture of the area. Which ones are good? Lastly, I'm a Frank Lloyd Wright fan - what should I plan on seeing?

Thanks!
