The Question Club
I'm going to be in Chicago for a work conference in May. I'm going a few days early and bringing my SO with me, who's never been to Chicago. I plan on taking us to the Shedd, Museum of Science and Industry, Field museum, and the Art Institute.|
How much time would you budget for each?
incredibly preliminary schedule:
Wednesday: arrive late afternoon, check into hotel, get dinner
Thursday: get to shedd at 9am for opening, see stuff. get lunch somewhere. go to art institute (close at 8pm)
Friday: all day work stuff, concert at night
Saturday: be at Science & Industry at 9:30am for open, see stuff. get lunch somewhere. go to Field museum (close at 5pm)
Is this too rushed so we wont be able to enjoy things? My biggest concern is doing S&I and Field in the same day, especially on a Saturday when it will presumably be busy.
Are they any places in downtown/near these places that i absolutely MUST take my SO to for dinner?
Any other attractions i MUST take my SO to and see? we will not have a car, and i want to keep the taxis to a minimum.
dk/dc/never been to chicago: whats the best souvenir you have brought back from a vacation?
