    After arriving on the Zephyr, my wife and I had a rough time traversing thought the subterranean maze, collecting our suitcases, and exiting to find Ubers. There's lots of construction in the abyss, and as such there's little helpful signage and direction. It was difficult for us as seasoned travelers; we did ask questions multiple times and finally found our way to street level. I was excited seeing the famous staircase filmed in the Untouchables where Kevin Costner and Andy Garcia captured the bookkeeper! Of course I couldn't resist reenacting the scene - "Got him"

    Historic Irish Roman Catholic Church in downtown, Chicago. We need to preserve these awesome historic inner city/downtown churches. St. Patrick’s is an easy walk from the Sears/Willis Tower.

    Greektown's easy to access as a visitor to Chicago; it's just west of the Kennedy expressway, is not far away from the Loop (downtown), and is the gateway to the West Loop, full of hip bars and restaurants. Easy public transit access via bus or CTA blue line stops.

    Perhaps some of the character of Greektown has been reduced in recent years. This is due to some of the classic Greek restaurants along Halsted St. closing, due to either families deciding to get out of the business or shifting business conditions; the closure of some of the Greek-focused retail; and the gentrification of the surrounding neighborhood, now one of Chicago's most affluent. That said, it still has a Greek feel: there's the Hellenic museum; cool, Greek-focused architectural details; Greek street art; and a number of excellent Greek restaurants at which you can still get an authentic Greek meal and Greek hospitality.

    Worth a visit!

    Great selection of food, desserts, and international cuisine, even without all of the vendors being open when we were there!

    My son and I went there, first time ever throwing axes. We had a lot of fun! LA was a great coach! We were the only ones there at that time.

    Definitely an interesting museum for looking at art from a different perspective. Most reviews say it takes about 45 minutes to complete and that is pretty accurate. They only take online tickets and the price is substantially higher than other musuems in Chicago. If you only have 1 day, spend it at the Field Museum or the Art Institute...you will spend a whole day of higher level learning rather than 45 minutes of a cotton candy experience.

    I live in Milwaukee, long drive so slow with traffic! I don't know how people that live around there can deal with the traffic! Mix of old and new and things re-crafted? not to many vendors as I went in Dec and it's an indoor market only. I hear it's crazy in summer as there are many more vendors taking up the entire parking lot. I collect vintage Christmas and Jewelry and did find a few things

    Visitors to Chicago should use this valuable transportation resource. We were able to cover a lot of ground at a fraction of the cost of ride share cars. Get advice from locals if your have concerns about safety on specific routes at specific times of day but we always felt safe when we traveled.

    Cute place to take photos and that’s about it! Nice places to eat around the area but in regards to Big Monsters, it’s cool for aesthetic

    This museum tells the story of the Greeks coming to America, why and how they came, and what they made of their life here. The photographs and accompanying commentary are insightful, detailed, and often surprising to me. It was delightful and heartwarming to see the connection to Chicago.

    The museum also had a retrospective exhibit of Georges Kokines, a superbly talented artist in a number of media, who I'd never heard of. What a lovely surprise that was.

    Citigroup Center is a 42 story, 180 meter skyscraper located on Madison Street, in Chicago, USA . The modern structure was designed by the architecture firm M/s Murphy & Jahn in 1984.& the construction of building was completed in 1987 , which was previously known as the “Northwestern Atrium Center” and “Citigroup Center”. The building contains retail shopping, fast food restaurants, a few banks / offices, and is connected to the platforms of Ogilvie Transportation Center for Metro Trains.
    I am impressed with its design, it looks like a water stream cascading down a cliff. It is a beautiful building, efficiently laid out to handle the flow of visitors.
    I love this sparkling clean building as I walk past it very often and go to its food court occasionally.

    We recently moved into the area, and this was one of the locations we were excited that was part of the neighborhood. It is a huge space that expanded with even more outdoor space for entertaining. It is real casual environment both inside/outside - they used to even have board games available for the guest to play. They allow children and animals; it makes it a great place to invite all you friends. The outdoor space makes it great in the summer for folks to hang out. I really wish Chicago had more options similar to this. Additionally, the food is served by Lillie q's which is delicious BBQ and they have a great spicy, fried chicken sandwich.

    This was my family's second visit to Paniq and my first time. We've been to other escape rooms and this one has ambience and flair! Jim was particularly kind as our guide. We're excited to return again! We're going to try all the rooms. It's that good.

    We attended a large wedding here. The venue is large and inviting. Although it is industrial looking, it can be warmed up nicely. The food was superb. The feeling was chic but the focus remained clearly on the bride/groom and the attendees. A great way to start a life.

    Haymarket is a pub on W. Randolph Street that we recently stopped by while waiting for our table at Au Cheval across the street to become available. They have a good sized indoor seating area as well as a few tables near the bar. Several tellies behind the bar showing sports games.

    Drink list includes a good selection of handcraft beers. We enjoyed a porter and blond that both pretty good, easy to enjoy while watching a bit of baseball and basketball on the evening. Would be happy to pop back in for another round if in the area if in the area again.
