South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

We had a 9 year old with us and it was fine. The employees were aware of a child there and gave her some special attention. They were very nice. It's a long evening and loud, but she had fun!

It may be difficult as they all speak with the 1929 accent as well. My whole family, young and old including a non native English speaking person (my wife) loved the place. Just depending on fluency, may or may not be an... More

Those who have experienced Tommy Gun's Garage seem to like it or hate it. Do those living in Chicago think its good fun/value when they have visitors? Second question to those who have attended it, is it "smoky" from special effects? Husband has lung problem so need to know.

Never been to tommy Gun's. some suggestions I have. Take the Grand Tour of Chicago to see the highlights of Chicago. Free pick up at many hotels. You might want to buy a CTA Visitors Pass. They sell 1 to 7 day passes at Visitor Centers, O'Hare & Midway airports. ( 1 day-$5.00, 2day-$9, and 3 day $12.00) Check out Chicago Transportation on the innernet. I've read that at the Marshall Fields 7th floor visitor center you can get coupon for two/one tickets to Art Museum. You may enjoy lunch on...More
