I've got 2 days to fill on my own when travelling with work and hoped someone would have some great suggestions on where I want to visit. is it worth hiring a car to see anything nearby. I love small quirky towns etc

You must try a local pizza - like a pie. Order the smallest one!

That was one of the highlights if our trip there a few years ago!

If you like independent shop/bars go to Wicker Park for a wander. Take a river trio through the city. Have a cocktail at the top of the Hancock building. Eat a massive pizza at Pizza UNO. Shop on the Magnificent Mile. Catch a baseball game at Wrigley Field. Loads to do without leaving the city.

River trip. I have no idea what a river trio is!

I love, love, love chicago!

Navy pier is lovely & quirky, worth a trip there. The view fron the ferris wheel is beautiful at night.

Shedd aquarium is a must, it's amazing. You can swim with beluga whales & see a brilliant show with them in.

Museum campas is great if you enjoy that kind of thing.

The sears tower is bloody brilliant, you stand in a glass box that hangs off the side of the building. They serve great lavazza coffee too.

Shopping on magnificent mile is great, lots of bargains to be had in H&M.

I found Pizzano's pizza to be the best. Check it out.

Have a wonderful time, lucky you.
