Where to stay
Hyatt Regency Chicago
Great location right on the river. Underground connections to the Chicago pedway. Lots of quick food stops under ground as well as within the hotel. Select the photos below to enlarge and scroll through.
Where to Eat
We enjoyed a traditional Chicago style pizza here! It took a good 45 minutes to get our meal because they make it fresh. Come hungry!!
What To DO
The aquarium was incredibly busy the day we went. The line went all the way down the front stairs and further down the hill. We did get a tip from an employee. If you come with a stroller or wheelchair, you can use the side entrance (by the fish fountain pictures below). The line was 1/10 short than the main line. They will only allow you to use this line if you have a stroller or wheelchair, they did monitor the line though!
Cloud Gate AKA The Bean
One of the main attractions of Millenium Park, Cloud Gate is a fun and quick stop while you're in the city.
Wendella Boat Rides
I recommend the architecture and lake tour. They bring you up the river, show you the famous buildings then take you over to the locks and in to the lake for a breathtaking view of the city.
From rides to restaurants, exhibitions to entertainment, shopping to dining cruises and tour boats Navy Pier has it all - in a location unlike any other! Includes a Ferris Wheel, Chicago Children's Museum, IMAX Theater and more!
A store featuring Hershey branded items. "Make" some candy and watch the big machine go to work!
