    Hi Ladies,

    Tomorrow i'm leaving to meet my younger sis in Winconsin (US), i would like to know the places we can see during our visit to her. We'll be there for 3 1/2 days, friday night, saturday, sunday & until monday eve. Can anybody plz suggest me places to visit during our short visit including one day in chicago. That would be very helpful, my sis is also very new to the place. She just moved to winconsin after her marriage in feb.

    So i would be really appreciate if somebody suggest some places to visit.

    Hey Cheer,

    This is the most wonderful time of the year to visit the Mid-west!:)

    In Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Madison & Door County would be the places to check out. But, for a short trip Door County won't be feasible. There are plenty of state parks near Madison. Check out the foll. links for trip ideas in Wisconsin...

    In Chicago, Sears towers, Navy Pier, Downtown, Michigan Avenue, Lake Michigan are major tourist attractions. Chk the foll links....

    Have a wonderful & fun holiday!!!:)

    I left shedd aquarium bcoz it is not that great, compared to other aquariums in US

    It will be little disappointing if you had already visited good aquarium elsewhere in US

    kika thats true,aquarium is not that good,and for the sears there is a better option,check out the signature lounge at hancock observatory,the place is awesome,we get nice view from there and the restaurant had good ambience and its best to have a great look than from sears tower.
    and do check out the Milineium park(the cloud gate and the towers),the navy pier, there is a Buckingham Fountain that is one of the largest,they have lights and water show in the evening,also do check out the lakefront.

    there are also spring flower shows at garfiled and lincoln Conservatory parks.
