I Hi, can anyone advise me a Sim card I could buy in Chicago with good coverage also to New York without paying roaming? I just need it for 15 days.I´ve been researching and thought that Ready Sim could be an option, but they don´t have local shop in Chicago. I know if I buy it online, they can have it delivered to hotels but I would not like to do this way.
Just looking at the weather and it seem real cold in Chicago at the moment, although we are not arriving until the 30th April, I was wondering if we can expect good weather by then?

I will be at GE Education Center (GE RiversEdge Condominiums, N16 W22350 Watertown Road Waukesha, Wisconsin 53186), for a week Technical Training Course, my wife will stay with me at the Condo, because there is no extra charge. She is a painter (www.sandranunes.com) and for reasons related to that she wants to visit Chicago every day, that way , I am looking for an easy, safe, cheap, practical way, that she could go to Chicago, spend the day there, and go back to Condo everyday.
I appreciate any help!

I'm an inexperienced traveler with a deep desire to go to the Chicago Blues Festival. No friends are available, so I'm wondering if it's an okay trip to take alone. I'm not very street savvy, so am a little apprehensive. What are your thoughts? Any words of advice? Thanks!
I will be visiting Chicago from DC in the Spring and I just wanted to plan an itinerary before I do so. The day I was hoping to visit Millennium Park was the same I was hoping to take a boat tour of the Riverfront. I was expecting to get to Millennium Park by about 2pm. From that time, about how long would it take to visit all of these things if I am not rushing?
Art Institute of Chicago (most likely 2 hours) - though I am thinking about doing this a separate day
Jay Pritzker Pavilion
BP Pedestrian Bridge
Chicago Cultural Center
Would this all be do-able in about 4 hours? I figured they are all within yards of each other.
Hello, can anyone tell me what the best hotel would be for a Blackhawks game? I'm looking for one close to the United Center, not a dump hotel, but something suitable?
My step daughter is due to fly in to Chicago on Monday from UK.
Just wondered what the conditions are like at the moment.
I know we will be notified by our courier if there are problems but just wondered what it's like from people on the ground.
Keeping an eye on the conditions from the UK but weather is too "generalised" to have any real idea
Hello Chicago people, anybody knows of any good vegetarian restaurants in downtown Chicago?

Hi all, I am Canadian and I will be visiting Chicago from June 27 to July 1st. I am looking to organise a fun itinerary for myself and my 16 years old son! He is very open minded and curious about almost everything! Any suggestions to make this mother/son trip a very fun time? (We will be staying in old town Chicago) :)
Hello, Im going to visit Chicago for the first time... Would it be better for me to stay in old town Chicago or the Ukrenian village?
I'm planning my summer holidays (mid august to mid september). I'm planning to fly to Chicago from Manchester, stay there for 2 or 3 days, then rent a car and get on the road to Los Angeles from where I'll fly back to Europe. I'm planning this trip to take somewhere between 10 and 14 days, and I want your advices of what to see to make these holidays special! The only thing that I've got on my list is the Grand Canyon, but I want to see as much as possible in the short time that I'll have.
Things that interest me the most:
Desert roads with nothing but cacti from both sides
Small towns where I could feel like in a western movie!
Give me some ideas of the best roads to take, things to see and places to visit!

Can anyone recommend a good hotel to stay in Chicago? We are currently looking at hotels around the Chicago river. Looking at a decent hotel that is not too pricey. The Westin is a potential hotel we are looking at booking.
Hey there we are planning a road Trip in September. I have always wanted to visit Chicago (I am from the UK,and a Bears fan), and planned to spend around 5 days there. After that we are looking to go on a road trip.
My initial plan is this - Drive down Route 66 stopping possibly at Springfield, IL. We then plan to drive to St Louis, MO.
After that we plan to visit Nashville, TN, then onto Louisville, KY, then to Indianapolis, IN, before returning to Chicago to fly back to the UK.
Would this Journey be feasible in around 14 days (Including 5 days in Chicago)? Also would anyone recommend alternative places to visit on the route I am planning?
And lastly, can anyone recommend are good place to stop off for day between St Louis and Nashville?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Hi, all. We have had a change in our 15 year traditional Christmas Eve plans (day and night) and are looking to do something special to create new traditions. We live an hour outside of Chicago. The break in tradition started last year, and we did a special dinner at home, but frankly it was rather depressing. It just didn't feel like Christmas to me, if that makes any sense.
That being said, we've decided to shake it up. Looking for a start late morning to do some exploring, and then rounding out the day with a dinner somewhere special and then maybe see some lights? Lincoln Park Zoo is closed Christmas Eve. It will be hubby and I and two very late teens, with possibly grandma and grandpa who are both mobile and easy going.
1. During the day, what would be a fun thing to do? Where would be best to walk around, explore, etc. but with an eye on special Christmas traditions?
2. Ideas for dinner? Obviously having to park only once would be ideal, so coordinating the day with the night would be great, but is not completely a necessity if it's something special. We don't want anything over the top upscale. I don't want to walk around in a skirt/dress/dress clothes all day long and look frumpy by the time dinner rolls around. We literally eat any kind of food.
I know it's a lot to ask, but thanks for any ideas!
I'm visiting Chicago next week and have very limited time. What is the must-go museum in the city (I'm interested in all kinds of art, from classical to modern) and where can you get best deep-dish pizza near Magnificent Mile?
nervous about safety travelling from western suburbs to downtown with 2 young children... any advice/comments?
We will be in Lombard with young family and wanting to travel into Chicago for 'day trips' - should we drive in or take public transit? We decided to stay in this area as downtown hotels/condos all booked or very pricey. Thanks
I´m travelling to Chicago in late May and will stay 2 nights. I know that there is still some time left, but when I´m checking it seems that there is almost no availability on the hotels downtown/central Chicago, and the few that have availability are extremely expensive. Is something special going on from May 30 - June 1, 2014? Or will more rooms probably be available when we get closer in time?
I will be spending 4 days in Chicago (13 Dec to 16 Dec, although) with my family which includes two children of age 8 and 10.
Initially, I had wanted to include the Architecture Boat Tour but it seems that they are closed for December. May I know if there is any other company which runs the tour in December?
If no, I am at a loss of where to bring the children as I need to keep them entertained with activities suitable for them. Zoos will not be on our list. Is there any list of buildings that I can travel on my own to see?
Currently, I have included the following:
2. Millennium Park
4. Navy Pier
5. Michigan Avenue
Please advise on any other places that I can include.
Thank you so much.
Is Szala's on Archer permanently closed?
Looking for recommendations for hotels downtown that are close to the top attractions in Chicago, We were thinking of staying at the Fairmont but see it had bed bugs in june 2012.
