Chicago day trip.....getting off my usual beat......suggestions

Jump to last reply

Planning a day trip to Chicago and want to do some different things away from the usual. will arrive on Amtrak or else try the Park n' Ride around Joliet (suggestions welcome on how to do that!). thinking about trying the free Chicago Greeters 1 hour drop in tour of the Loop. then thinking of navigating one of the L routes into the neighborhoods. saw a suggestion for Lincoln Park I like. Or else would also be interested in a neighborhood that is more casual this trip. going with someone who likes Irish, sports, history, and beer/wine.....if there is another neighborhood suggestion. also thinking about attending Saturday mass at a traditional/beautiful Catholic Church. Since it's summer, getting neat the water (besides on navy pier) would also be nice. Just a day trip to experience a few new things. thanks for any suggestions! Two adults and no kids for the day!
