Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world. Millions of people travel from all over the world to visit Chicago each year. Many people in Chicago, surprisingly, have never done many of the tourist activities that millions come to do. We recently saw a list by Thrillist that we felt did a great job expressing the typical Chicago Bucket List. We picked out our favorites to share with you.

Drinks at The Signature Room

The Signature Room is one of the best spots for drinks in Chicago. You can’t beat the views! Fabulous views! Feel free to walk around after you’ve been seated! This fantastic place offers an almost 360 view!

Hot Dogs at SuperDawg Drive In

One cannot go through life without experiencing the special wonders of Superdawg! Their dogs are arguably the best in Chicago. Cooked to perfection in a wondrous blend of flavors and textures.

Grab some food and go to a show at Jay Prtizker

Watch a Cubs game from the bleachers

Can’t beat the bleachers!!

Hit Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium and The Field Museum in the same day!

This is referred to as hitting the “Chicago Triple Crown.” Definitely a must do, and a solid bucket list item for all, even Chicagoans!

Head to the Lincoln Park Zoo during the winter

The lights during the winter at Lincoln Park Zoo are some of the best in the country. You absolutely can’t go wrong checking out the winter lights at LPZ!

Eat at Alinea

Widely regarded as the best restaurant in Chicago…and one of the best restaurants in the world. This place lives up to the hype! One of the most creative experiences of my life. Don’t go in expecting just a meal… Alinea curates an experience for all senses. If you can get a reservation, you won’t be disappointed!

Check out a Show at Kingston Mines

If you like or love blues, this is your place. Like or love PLAYING blues, this is even MORE your place. Open jam sessions before the main acts play make Kingston an experience and not just a club or bar. Food is awesome and the cooks in the kitchen are hilarious and entertaining.

Take a drunken trip to Wiener’s Circle

Hilarious! You better tip these ladies! After 10:00 give them $20 and ask for a chocolate shake. You won’t be disappointed

Hitch a water taxi to Chinatown
