5 Things To Do in Chicago (After You’ve Done Everything)

  1. The International Museum of Surgical Science: I want you to picture the largest collection of kidney stones in the world. That is just one of the many medical miracles you’ll uncover here, with antique (sometimes horrifying) medical instruments and anatomical art. Tucked away in the Gold Coast, it is another reason to explore Chicago’s wealthiest neighborhood. 
  2. The Chicago Murder Mystery Tour: Explore the city and solve a crime with this interesting and interactive tour through Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. See the original playboy mansion, and discover how Chicago was built through crimes!
  3. Hit the Beach, Watch for Birds! Montrose Beach is connected to the Magic Hedge, a bird sanctuary that welcomes over 300 different kinds of birds as they migrate along Lake Michigan.
  4. Oasis Cafe: $15 can take you to the Middle East in this Mediterranean cafe tucked behind a Jewelry store in the Jeweler’s District on Wabash Ave. You can admire high-end watches while enjoying some of the freshest Falafel and Hummus in the midwest, making for one of the best restaurants in downtown Chicago.
  5. The Chicago Pedway: Few Chicago visitors know to take advantage of the art and access of the Chicago Pedway, a series of underground tunnels that host Victorian glass art, hidden restaurants, and more!
