  • My house!

    Seriously, you would probably be best off at the Embassy suites on State Street. It is steps from michigan avenue; a block from the subway. Not more than 45 minutes by bus to the Museum of Science and Industry; about 30 minutes by bus from Lincoln Park Zoo; maybe 15 minutes by bus from the Museum campus (home of the Shedd) and Navy Pier (home of the Chicago Children's museum)

    Contact me directly with any questions.
