If you are in Chicago for a few days, better make the most out of it. One thing you must do would be to go up the Willis Tower Skydeck.

As expected, those who are afraid of heights would want to think twice before going to this place. It may make you nervous about what is going to happen next. Also, bring the entire family to Navy Pier where there rides and loads of great selections for food. You won’t notice how fast time flies when you are in this place. The kids will surely have a great time but don’t worry because there is always something for everyone to do. Better bring your walking shoes though as the place is huge so you would not want to be left behind doing something else when you can be doing another. Those who want to try Chicago specialties have come to the right place. The prices may be a bit high but you will certainly get your money’s worth.

Millennium Park is another place to go to for a few hours. If you like skating, there is an ice skate rink there for all ages.
