We will be visiting Chicago for two days (June 4th and 5th) for the first time. I have a few questions:
1. On the top of our sightseeing list is the Chicago Architecture Foundation boat tour. Is there a better time of day to go on this tour (early morning, late afternoon, etc.)?
2. We will be going to the Apollo Theater to see Million Dollar Quartet at 7:30 (on a Wednesday) and we will be taking public transportation. We would like to stop at the Chicago History Museum and eat at Lou Maltani's (on Wrighwood in Lincoln Park) before the show (after the Museum). We are renting an apartment in the Aqua Building. What time should we plan to leave the apartment to make sure we get to the theater on time? Also, is it safe to walk from the transit stop and/or restaurant to the theater at night?
3. Any alternative advice on this plan?
