I'm going to Chicago....

I'm going in December before Christmas & I've never been. Anyone have any "must sees" for a tourist?

DO I??? You have GOT to see the Field Museum, it's the museum of Natural History. It'll knock you socks off. Be sure to hit up the Art Institute, eat Giordano's stuffed spinach pizza, go down to the magnificent mile. Avoid Navy Peer at all costs!

The Field Museum, the Art Institute and the Magnificent Mile are must sees. You should also go to the Shedd Aquarium, which is right near the Field Museum. It's amazing.

And since you're coming here around Christmas, you should definitely go shopping on State Street. All the shops (especially Marshall Fields) put up beautiful decorations and it's just a very "Christmas-ey" atmosphere.

Oh, and if you want stuffed spinach pizza, go to Gino's East. It's the best, although Giordano's is quite good as well.

there's a great van gogh/gaugin exhibit right now at the art institute that i would highly recommend. and i think there's a cleopatra exhibit at the field museum. i haven't checked it out yet, but i'm sure it's cool. and you definitely can't beating shopping on michigan avenue.

I can't believe I forgot to mention this. If you enjoy art at all, you *must* go.

Stuffed spinach pizza is a must-have if you're in the Chicago area. Also, if you do go to Marshall Field's you should check out (or eat in) the Walnut Room- around the holidays they decorate it very nicely. Last year's theme was Harry Potter!
