Post in the Chicago specific forum rather than the general Illinois forum and you'll get more responses. But the first question is going to be what sort of things are you interested in:

I like Chicago theater, so that is on my must see list.

As a kid the place I always wanted to see was the Museum of Science and Industry. As an adult I think the Field Museum is better.

If you've never been there before, I think going up in either the John Hancock building or the former Sears Tower (sorry can't remember it's present name) would be among the must dos. But choosing between them depends on your reason for going up in it. The Hancock buidling has the better views; the former Sears Tower is taller and has more educational stuff provided in the tour.

Some think that Navy Pier is a must, but I can't see why unless you just need an excuse to spend money.

First: post on the Chicago forum. There are some great advice givers there who may never find your question on the State forum. It would help to know something about you and your likes/dislikes. There is so much to do for kids, teens, young singles, young couples, adults, older couples, grandma and grandpa in the City. A little direction would be helpful.
