My wife and 6yr old daughter and I want to visit Chicago after a few days at Wisconsin Dells. We're coming in Thursday and will leave Saturday morning to return home to Pittsburgh.
We're looking for something safe and "economical" so we're not going to stay in the city. What are some safe areas that will still provide as access (via train if necessary) into town. We definitely want to go to the aquarium and to the Navy Pier. Other than that - we're very flexible.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. We're capable of doing some serious walking - so if there is a good central place to park for the day - we'd like to know where that is, as well. Thanks
