Must Sees in Chicago / Milwaukee / Minneapolis

Jump to last reply

There is 4 of us going for a baseball trip. All late 20s / early 30s next August. It will be 4 days in Chicago, 1.5 days in Milwaukee, 3.5 days in Minneapolis. Our schedule looks like this:

Thursday: Arrive Chicago early afternoon

Friday: Open day in Chicago

Saturday: Cardinals - Cubs game (I realize it may be hard to get tickets but will spend extra to get tickets, if we are unable to get them online)

Sunday: Red Sox @ White Sox game

Monday: Drive to Milwaukee for a Brewers game (Its a day game)

Tuesday: Drive to Minn. in the afternoon. Assuming a 6 hr drive

Wed: Twins game (another day game)

Thursday: Free Day

Friday: Free day, fly back late afternoon

Our schedule is pretty much set based on the baseball schedules. Seeing the Red Sox in 1 of the cities and having all teams home led to this week.

What are other sites in Chicago and Minneapolis that are must sees? Chicago, I am thinking Sears Tower or Hancock Tower, a boat trip on the Lake. Haven't done much research on Minneapolis yet. What about restaurants / bars to go to?
