Hey, we had our trip and I just wanted to thank everyone for the suggestions.
Ultimately stuff ended up getting changed around last minute and we didn’t have as much time to do everything as we hoped (always the way), and the planetarium was still closed so we skipped the museums altogether for a walk along the river and some time in Millennium Park and going to the Buckingham Fountain.
For food, Pequods ended up being too busy but we met some friends in town and went to Lou Malnatis instead. Ended up doing Luke’s for a Italian Beef and, legitimately one of the best Polish sausages I’ve had in my life. Also went to the Nutella Cafe for the kid (which was fine. You know what you are getting in a place like that.) Because flights home got moved we ended up not having the second half day we expected so that was pretty much it in your city. It wss foggy as heck so we didn’t go up in Willis Tower either. But all in all we had a nice time.
Oh, we did take your advice and move our hotel closer to the loop. And we took the architectural boat tour which was a huge win for me and my wife, the kid was bored to tears, but she got to go to the Nutella Cafe so it’s all a wash.
Thanks all. Hopefully we come back and do a proper visit sometime soon. It was fun.
