    You could watch Ferris Bueller to find out what to do, lol. We've only ever driven through Chicago but it's a place I'd like to explore some day. If you ever make it to Baltimore, I'd be happy to be your tour guide.

    Chicago has areally cool downtwon. On Michigan Ave in the downtown loop, there is a whole lot of shopping and restaraunts. There is also the Navy Pier, and the Aquarium on Lake Michigan which is right next to Soldier Field. There is also the Hancock Building, The Sears Tower you can see along with other things I am sure. Just a few ideas for you there.

    Chicago is such a picturesque city. I would imagine it is really nice this time of year...I was there in mid-November and it was cold. But they have beautiful parks along Lakeshore. In addition to the things JQuatt21 mentioned, I advise taking a one of those guided tours of the city...it's a great way to see and learn about the city in a relatively short time.

    I love Chicago, my mom works there. I live in NW Indiana. I been there a lot, but I'm terrible with streets and addresses. (Trust me.)

    Make sure you bring a camera, there is sooo many cool pictures you can take!

    OK lets not start arguing. We can both agree on something we're Hoosiers and want Indiana to have their own baseball team, right? (Hopefull)

    Also Chrissy&Tayen, try to eat at Elephant and Castle they have awesome food! I recommend the beer batter chicken stips. (At least, I think thats what its called!)
