    Hi friends,

    We are planning to visit Chicago for first time with a 15 month old. Since we are going on long weekend of July 4th, ie. Sat and Sun, Please can anyone who has visited or from Chicago, let me know the places I should visit in this short time. I would like to know the places I should not miss and can be covered in 2 days. If anyone has an iternary already planned and tried, it would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Thanks for the reply. We enjoyed the trip a lot.I can give our itinerary. We parked at the Soldier parking. To the left of the parking was Field museum and to the right was Shedd aquarium. We passed by Field museum and took a bus to Millennium park, saw the Cloud Bean and Taste of Chicago( a food festival). Took another bus to Navy Pier and strolled the place. Then we took a water taxi to Shedd's and went to the aquarium. So we covered almost all the places in a day. It was a short trip that we had planned as our DS should not get tired. Some other places to visit would be the Devon street and the Arora temple.
