    The Garfield Park Observatory is a beautiful place for an event with all of the indoor foliage. There is plenty of room to have dinner, dance and wander around the trees and flowers. About a block away, it can get a bit sketchy, so I thought it was better to Uber than park a car. Especially at night. Uber took care of that.

    I visited during a time that no games were happening, but I still wanted to visit the Bulls/Blackhawks shop to get some gear, and visit the Michael Jordan statue. It was very nice. Lots of cool items inside.

    As the only remaining church designed by Louis Sullivan, this is a ‘must see’ structure in Chicago. The tour was informative: the guide was very knowledgeable. The cathedral is located in one of Chicago’s fun and vibrant neighborhoods, Ukrainian Village, where there’s lots to do and enjoy.

    After arriving on the Zephyr, my wife and I had a rough time traversing thought the subterranean maze, collecting our suitcases, and exiting to find Ubers. There's lots of construction in the abyss, and as such there's little helpful signage and direction. It was difficult for us as seasoned travelers; we did ask questions multiple times and finally found our way to street level. I was excited seeing the famous staircase filmed in the Untouchables where Kevin Costner and Andy Garcia captured the bookkeeper! Of course I couldn't resist reenacting the scene - "Got him"

    Amazing! Arrived much later in the day than anticipated, but was still welcomed in to take photos. I didn’t get the name of the firefighter who showed me around as a call came in and they had to rush off before I could really see inside (apart from the bay) but he was so friendly and took pictures of me in the fire engine. I felt so welcomed and it really was the icing on the cake of my whistlestop weekend in Chicago! Thank you!

    Small but colorful museum in the Pilsen area. Three different exhibits to browse and a gift shop. Admission is free. Staff very friendly.

    Went to Goose Island to do the tour and was lucky enough to have Eliseo as our guide. Great tour! Came in not knowing which beer I wanted to try, finished the tour wanting to try every beer.

    Cool and hip neighborhood with lots of shops, stores, apartments. It is a good place to stroll and shop for various items. There are coffee shops, vintage clothing shops, vinyl record shops, and more. Go for a walk along North or Milwaukee Ave.

    One of the best neighborhoods in Chicago to find restaurants, bars, bookstores and lots of art in a wide variety of venues. Great food, great art, fun browsing the stores.

    Historic Irish Roman Catholic Church in downtown, Chicago. We need to preserve these awesome historic inner city/downtown churches. St. Patrick’s is an easy walk from the Sears/Willis Tower.

    Words can’t express how beautiful historic inner-city church’s are. This parish was established by Polish immigrants around the turn of the century. I went to a Latin mass Monday morning.

    It's a small but nice museum. The people who run it are very friendly. They are eager to tell you about the culture and history of Ukraine, which is very nice. The museum is free. They do take donations. You will see and learn a lot about Ukraine. The egg collection is beautiful!

    We enjoyed this urban trail for three days in a row. It does get busy, but it is walkers, joggers and bikers only. The neighborhood has shops, restaurants, apartments, houses. We enjoyed this 2.7 mile trail very much and will return whenever we are in the area. I recommend!

    The best brewery tour I’ve done anywhere in the world. Great employees that are passionate about the product really make it interesting and in such a chilled atmosphere.

    Great authentic Chicago home. To tour is free but they request you go online and get a tour time set. Lots of antiques to look at. Two floors and the dining hall is a separate building.
