The city itself was cool as hell, IMO. I'm a small town guy, and I really enjoyed it.
Ditto. Did that this summer. The Hancock and Willis tower will set you back like $35 each to go up it. It was a little foggy (hurricane Isaac reminants) when we went up, but it was still very cool and very much worth it.
The Pier is cool. Wrigleyville is cool, but that was a game day too.
People watching on the train, and tons of good eating in and around the loop. We walked into Bella Bachino (it was really busy and they made it sound like we really should have made reservations) but I can't complain about the food there. It was definitely good.
