Chicago -- Southern Country Mice Visit Big Northern City

Jump to last reply

Taking my 25 year old daughter and my sister to Chicago for a long weekend (Feb 17-20).
My sister and I were there once over 30 years ago so we are like nubbies. We are staying at the Allerton Hotel. So far we know we want to take the archeticture boat tour, maybe ice skate at Millenium Park, see the Museum of Science and Industry (one of the few memories from 30 years ago so I am insisting on this one). Still a question mark around Hancock bldg and Maxwell Market. Worth the time? Any other recommended sites? We are not really into art museums but do really want to get the feel of Chicago...food included. We are foodies but not just expensive high end places. Great street food? Wonderful splurge dinner (thinking around $300 for 3)? Daughter is requesting a piano bar suggestion. Great theater? Maybe Second City? Have made plans to borrow winter gear as we feel sure it will be down right cold. All ideas welcome...thanks ever so much.
