First, let me say that we LOVED Chicago !! It was a marvelous trip.
We arrived at O'hare wednesday April 8 at 12h30. We took a taxi (we were a group of 4 adults) to our B&B: Flemish House on Cedar Street. I will post a separated report for the accomodation but I can tell you already that it was a perfect stay.
After check-in we went to the Oak street beach and believe it or not we removed our shoes and walk in the warm sand. Oh WOW!!!!
In our 4 days stay, we do alot of shopping on Michigan, Wells, Oak and State (where we discover Anthropology boutique); we visit Lincoln Park, the zoo and the Hystory Museum, we visit Millenium and Grant Park, the Cultural center; we visit Navy Pier, sit in the sun and relax there; we had a drink at John Handcock Center and we walk the Loop, the Gold Coast and the Near North. We've been at Blue Chicago for a Blues evening. We have very good meals for dinner at Gino East Pizza (first time tasting deep dish pizza: a great experience!), at Bice Ristorante, at Cafe Iberico and at Bistro Zinc. For breakfast we were please at Bakery Corner, Original Pancake House and Tempo Cafe.
The weather was beautiful, maybe a little bit cold on friday but always sunny.
Thyank you for all the good advises from tripadvisor forum.
