I am heading to Chicago in Late July on business (31-Aug 2) and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on things to see? I will be working a forum during most of the day, but I should have evenings and early morning to do what I want. I could also likely arange to travel out early on July 30th before the forum instead of the evening of the 30th if there is anything in particular someone recommends that I should see during the day time. I am looking not just for photo opportunities, but also anything anyone recommends on just plain cultural things to do (museums, good food (but not to pricey), art museums, any zoos etc). I am staying down town near I-290/W Congress parkway and would prefer to keep the travel down, but I don't have anything again taking the rail line to get to things (I am staying about 2 blocks from the Harrison stop). This is my first time to the city. Thanks.
