December Visit

by princessofnot

I will be arriving by rail and changing trains in Chicago in early December. I would love to be able to try some of the 'world famous' Chicago style deep dish pizza. So what I am seeking is a location close to Union Station (walking distance) and also ADA accessable that I could manage to get to before my train leaves .. aprox. 3 hours.

The closest place to Union Station is Giordano's at 223 W. Jackson, they have stuffed pizza which is another of Chicago's specialty pizzas. It says it's .3 miles on mapquest, if you leave out of the Jackson Street side of the station it's a straight shot up Jackson.

If you want deep dish, you are going to have to take a cab. Lou Malnati's at 439 N. Wells would be my recommendation, the one in the south loop might be slightly closer but I think it's pretty small and the reviews of it aren't as good. Lou's on Wells is 1.3 miles from Union Station.

I would recommend carrying their phone # with you and call in your order, deep dish/stuffed pizzas take 35-45 minutes to cook and by the time you get there the pizza will be almost ready.

Amtrak trains seem to be notoriously late getting into Chicago, you might want to have a plan B if pizza doesn't work out.

The Giordano's on Lake Street is 1.3 miles away, the one on Jackson is only .3 miles. The one at 815 W. Van Buren is Greektown looks to be slightly farther than the one on Jackson, maybe .5 miles. I'd go to the one on Jackson.

There's a Boston Blackie's near Union Station, great burgers, the address is 120 S. Riverside Plaza and is only about 1 block from Union Station.

Re: December Visit

I read that the River East location closed and that the one in Skokie closed but not the one near Union Station. But after reading the recent reviews on Yelp, maybe that's not a good suggestion. Maybe once the legal problems started happening, the quality started to tank...

Travel Tips for Chicago

What The City of Chicago Offered

by deecat

As much as I love Chicago, whenever I introduce someone to this great city for the first time, I'm always nervous that it might not be as impressive as I thought it would be. I should never doubt the impact this city has on visitors....my VT friend Rosie [rozehill] was overwhelmed with Chicago and all it has to offer.

As Photo #1 demonstrates, Chicago is a city of outstanding ARCHITECTURE...both old and new. This photo shows the old Chicago Water Tower and the modern John Hancock building. Both are unique, beautiful, and icons of the city.

Being October, the city was adorned with Fall Flowers. Rosie was so impressed with how many flowers the city provides. We even were able to witness the workers taking out the late summer flowers and replacing them with the dynamic and colorful Mums as pictured in Photograph #2.

We both appreciated the many spots right in the center of the city that provide calm and solitude for weary travelers and locals. My #3 photographs is such an example. Right in the midst of the Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue which is packed with tourists, one is able to find calm and comfort at the church garden and fountain. My photo #4 shows the famed Lions in front of the Chicago Art Institute on a Thursday evening when it is so crowded because on Thursday nights, there is free entrance. We visited the Art Institute and its lovely and huge gift shop. Once again, Rosie was impressed.

My final photograph #5 reflects the breathtaking visuals of Chicago's Lake Shore. Visitors, especially those from out of the country, are always amazed at the size of Lake Michigan. Except for the lack of tides, Lake Michigan looks like an ocean. And I personally think that the Lake Shore Drive is one of the most beautiful ones ever [and Rosie agrees!]

The windy city

by mocca

Chicago, on the shores of Lake Michigan, also called the windy city. Altough the times I was there, I didn't think it was windy (but I am from Holland, so I am used to wind). I did get lot of rain. But there were hot sunny days too, so I am not complaining at all. The people you meet if you go to one of the lesser know blues clubs are just great. Friendly, telling you about Chicago, and their favorite clubs. Just go out there and don't be afraid to meet some locals.

by Ky_Happy_Dad

take in a Cubs ball game at Wrigley field or see a game at the new White Sox Stadium, or visit the museums; but there is so much to see and do, and places to eat, it is hard to narrow this city down to a few activities. Seeing the city through the eyes of my young boys who took in everything with a sense of wonder and excitement.

ADLER PLANETARIUM & ASTRONOMY MUSEUM. Opened in 1930 as the first public planetarium in the western hemisphere, the Adler still has a traditional in-the-round Zeiss planetarium (called the Sky Theater) that shows constellations and planets in the night sky. The high-tech Sky Pavilion, a new glass structure that wraps around the old building, contains the interactive StarRider Theater. Also in this building are a telescope terrace and interactive exhibition galleries that include 3-D computer animations of the Milky Way and of the birth of the solar system. 1300 S.

by brucegt

Take a architecture boat tour from Navy Pier. The boat ride is about 75 minutes and it definitely worth about 20 dollars. There are alot of picture opportunities of Chicago skylight during the tour.
