Chicago - One Day Alone

Jump to last reply

In a few weeks, I will be coming to Chicago for a business meeting on 4/16. I decided to fly in early on 4/15(arrive at O'Hare at 10:45 AM) to explore Chicago for a day before the meeting, as I have never been to the area.

I am debating between the Chicago Loop and Magnificent Mile areas for staying that night. My tentative plan for the day is to arrive at O'Hare, take the blue downtown. Drop my bag off at the hotel and find a place to rent a bicycle. Bike around Millenium Park and along the lake for the entire afternoon(stopping at interesting looking places along the way). Then get dinner and walk around at night, perhaps stopping at a jazz show(preferably free).

In general, I am very interested in trying local food as much as possible, so will be sure to try the deep dish pizza, but am not sure where yet. I also love pastry/dessert/ice cream shops and would love to find one along the way.

Which area would you recommend that I stay in? I do not need any bit of luxury, nor will I be spending much or any time in the hotel other than sleeping. I am also not interested in luxury shopping, theater, the Sears tower, bars(as I will be alone), etc.

Thank you very much for your help!
