This is going to be our first trip to Chicago. We will be going there end of this month with our 3 years old daughter for 1 week stay. I would like to have some recommendations for good places to go to that would be interesting for a 3 years old. We will be staying at the Le Meridian on N Rush St. Is there any parking available near the hotel if we don't want to pay the extra fee for valet parking in the hotel. If we don't rent a car what is the public transport like going to the zoo, aquarium or The Pier? What river cruise would be good for us to do? Which park is highly recommended?
I love shopping and wants to know if there is public transport available to the factory outlet malls if we are not renting a car?
