We are planning on going to Chicago this summer! Any suggestions? We're thinking a 3,000 dollar budget.

No ideas? I've never been to Chicago before so I don't know what would be awesome places. I know we're thinking of Navy Pier and The American Girl store

Millennium park, Navy Pier...take a boat tour.

Go to the Willis Tower, for the view is fabulous. Navy Pier has the Children's Museum.

Of course there are the other museums... Art, science and industry, the shed aquarium, and the field museum. Yes have PIZZA, and Italian Beef.

It's next to Grant Park. The big silver bean is there. There are these neat fountains kids can run around and play in. My kids love them.

Awesome! Thanks!

Also, we're debating driving or taking the train. Either way it's a four hours. Is it even worth bringing our car? I don't think my husband wants to drive around a big city like that.

Chicago is my favorite place. I love it more than Vegas and my hometown, Milwaukee. The architecture is amazing, the views are breathtaking and there's so much going on.

I recommend Sears tower both during the day (you can see three states from there) and at night. Also, try to see a Cub/White Sox game.

The fountains are in the back. It's 2 tall brick walls with water streaming down.
