Must see/do things in Chicago?

I will be going to a training in December. The training is in Lombard, but is very close to Chicago. What are some must see/do things while I am there? I will only be able to go anywhere after 5 pm.

  • I used to live right by there, and I have to say the things I really miss are the Shedd Aquarium and especially eating at Portillo's!

  • If you aren't afraid of heights, the ledge on the Skydeck of the Sears (Willis) tower is a sight to behold! The skyline from that high up at night is amazing!
