Chicago part deux

Okay, so other than the first fun thing you should do in Chicago, there are many fun things to do in this toddling town.

Chicago City Pass
-access to 5 of Chicago's attractions: Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Museum of Science & Industry, Adler Planetarium, either Sears SkyDeck or Hancock Observatory. All are great, though, yes, I'm sure you all also have museums and planetariums where you are.

Go Chicago Card
similar to above.

Hancock Observatory
A great view of Chicago. The Signature Room on the 95th floor offers really great views while you eat or there's a lounge/bar on the 96th floor. Reservation are not needed but I think they're recommended especially wanting to go during peak times on a weekend.

Untouchable Tours
Did you know Chicago was home to many of the famous mob bosses and to many great gangster wars? Well, this 2 hour tour gives you a taste of gangster life in Chicago, taking you to all the different territories and famous locations, complete with sound effects and the greatest tour guide ever. A really fun tour, to be sure.

Millenium Park/Grant Park/The Bean/Buckingham Fountain

A nice, free attraction. You can view "the Bean", a new attraction to Chicago but a great place for pictures. A huge park with gardens, spitting fountains and a big open concert section complete with a huge lawn perfect for relaxing or a picnic. The week of the wedding is "blockbuster week" and has a few different music events happening: http://www.millenniumpark.org/documents/BlockbusterWeek.pdf
