"Museums Museums Museums!"
No trip to Chicago would be complete without visiting some of the world-class museums. The powers that be in Chicago have invested heavily in the "Museum Campus" on the near south side of the city. This infrastructure includes easily accesible public transportation between the sites and prime location near downtown and the lake. Part of this campus is the nice wide road connecting the different museums in the area, Museum Campus Drive. If you see one museum while in Chicago, you should spend the day at the Field Museum of natural history. But with the museum campus, it is very easy to see more than one at a time. You may also visit the Shedd Aquarium or the Adler Planitarium. You can also visit the newly renovated Soldier Field to take in a Bears game. All these are within easy reach of ample parking thanks to the beautiful tree-lined campus road served by affordable public transportation. It's all the fun and culture of a visit to a major city without the hassel.
