A good example of Chicago-style pizza. Deep dish is good, definitely try it if you've never had it before. Most Chicago natives prefer the thin crust. We just can't eat the deep dish all the time. :)

There are a TON of bars to visit before or after a ballgame, most of them similar enough that it doesn't matter. Walk Clark Street and choose whichever one speaks to you in the moment. Sports Corner has been one of our favorites for 15 years, and it's even better after the remodel to give them a great rooftop.

A building with a lot of history, this planetarium has a modern feel in its exhibits. There are a few viewing theaters where you can lean back and stare into the night sky, as well as some interactive exhibits.

One of the most interesting things about this building is that you can see the original, small aquarium when you walk in the front door. Once you get past that, it opens up to a much larger facility with great views of the lake in the area where the whales and dolphins live. Great habitats for all the animals. Check out the otters and penguins!
