The music, the food, the shopping, the entertainment, and oh... that lakefront. We just love our city. Full of history, full of life. We are biased, but it would surely be a shame not to frequently- or while you are visiting- check out the Art Institute. But if you aren't in the mood for Monet, or it's just not the day for Degas, there are countless other ways to spend your time. We have our favorites, but thought it would be more fun to enlist the help of some of our friends to see what their favorite Chicago-area destinations are. Is yours on the list?
