What are the best things to see and do in Chicago for a few days? I'd like to visit some good restaurants, explore the nightlife, and see some historic sights.

    Chicago is a beautiful city! I have only been once, and for less time than you plan on going but I can recommend going to the Natural History Museum and the Planetarium. They are really amazing museums and both can hold lots of different peoples attention.

    Also a city river tour is a must! It really gives you a lovely perspective on the place, and will help get you situated.

    While you are there you should try to eat at Frontera Grill. The Chef/Owner won the first Top Chef Masters, and his food is legendary.

    Also try some deep dish Pizza - the city is famous for them. over 6 years ago

    And be sure to visit Mothers on Division Street - a fantastic Jazz/ Blues club, not to be missed! over 6 years ago

    Have to jump in real quick. Do not go to Mothers (or Mothers II) on Division if you are older than 23 and looking for jazz or blues. Honestly, just stay away from that entire street. Here is a list of solid jazz and blues locations in Chicago. Welcome and enjoy your stay!

    i would agree with the Natural history Museum. If it is warm when you go, take the architecture boat ride. As for restaurants, check out MK and Cafe Spiaggi. Have fun! over 6 years ago
