Me, my husband and our 3 year old son will be visiting Chicago September 20-24. We are staying at Inn of Chicago. I bid on Priceline, so the hotel can't be changed. I am already scared after reading reviews, so please don't scare me more, lol. I plan to pack Lysol and air freshener in my suitcase and hope for the best:). The location at least seems good.
We definitely plan on the Shedd, MSI, Willis Tower and Millenium Park. If we decide to get a City Pass, will probably do a quick run through the Field Museum and hit the highlights. And of course a little shopping.
Our flight arrives on Saturday at 5:20 pm, so will just eat dinner that night. Our 3 full days are Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, and our flight on Wednesday isn't until 6:50pm. It seems that both Monday & Tuesday are free IL days at the Shedd & MSI. So, any thoughts on which day is best for those museums? I assume even with the free days, still better than Sunday?
Whichever day we visit the Shedd, we will try to take the water taxi to Navy Pier afterwards, just for the novelty of a boat ride. The only restaurants I have picked out so far are Wildberrys and Lou Malnatis.
While my husband and I have been to big cities before, this will be our first time taking our son, so I am a little nervous about that. We will get a ventra pass to use while we are there, hoping that is all pretty easy with a 3 year old:)
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
