You can get to the front of the line (and save on admission
price) at many Chicago sights with a CityPASS.
You'll find my favorite view of downtown on the 96th floor of
the John Hancock-in the ladies room (sorry fellas). The 96th floor
is a fun place to stop for lemonades and a munchie. If you
order right, you won't spend a fortune and you'll essentially get
the same view as the expensive restaurant one floor down.
It doesn't seem like it would be, but Buckingham Fountain up-close and
personal is an exciting adventure. You are not a Chicagoan till you
feel its mist on your face. And it's a fantastic photo
You'll find amazing free concerts at Millennium Park all summer
long. Pack a blanket and dinner. But don't bring your pet. No dogs
are allowed at Millennium Park.
If you go to the Rock N Roll McDonalds (600 N. Clark St.), your
kids will love the escalator.
ABC7 broadcasts live from its State Street Studio throughout
the day. If you are nearby, wander by to see a live newscast in
action. Your kids will get a kick out of trying to get on TV.
