Drink with a view… Instead of paying 18$ to go on top of the Hancock tower, choose the Signature Lounge bar. You’ll have a cocktail while enjoying the view. My tip ? The best view is from the woman’s bathroom. Kids friendly before 7pm

Chicago is THE hometown of blues. You’ll love this place : incredible musicians, crazy guitar lines set, awesome voices, charisma… definitely a must-do on your bucket list ! No children allowed. https://www.facebook.com/BuddyGuysLegends

Eataly / Le temple de la gastronomie italienne

43 E Ohio St, Chicago, IL 60611, États-Unis

Everything at Eataly smells like home and high-quality food and drink. Indulge yourself into the pleasure. You can shop, dine even take cooking classes. My tips : select your bottle and drink it at the bar with friends or try their fresh mozzarella di buffala with virgin olive oil, squisita. https://www.eataly.com/

Segway on the lakefront

505 N Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60611, États-Unis

At first, it could sound very difficult but you’ll experiment really quickly how it works and feel thrilled like a kid ! Drive along the lakefront until Museum field. Very funny and interesting guides, few anecdotes about the city, quite expensive but it worth it. My tips : look at groupon or other websites to get coupons or special offers. Sometimes, when paying cash, you’ll have better chances to negociate. http://chicagosegways.com/ http://www.chicagosegwaytour.com/ http://chicago.citysegwaytours.com/ http://www.mysegwayexperience.com/ http://bikechicago.com/segwaytours/ http://www.stevessegwaytours.com/Pages/default.aspx http://www.choosechicago.com/listing/Absolutely-Chicago-Segway-Tours/34743/

The Blanchard

1935 N Lincoln Park W, Chicago, IL 60614, États-Unis

One of the latest French-style restaurant to open in Chicago. The food is absolutely amazing ! Ask for their “macaron de foie-gras” or “le boeuf bourguignon” that are to die for… $$$ http://www.theblanchardchicago.com/ – – no parking valet

Would you be thrilled to walk on Mars ? Or to land a spaceship on the Moon ? Put yourself in the shoes of Buzz Aldrin or Neil Armstrong at the Adler Planetarium 🙂 Family friendly. My tip : enjoy the multiple areas for kids along the way to make it more attractive for the youngest (lego construction, robot experimentation, spaceship playground…) http://www.adlerplanetarium.org/

There are many different cruises to see Chicago from the inside. My favorite is the CAF one. The guide is so talented, he has a story or an anecdote for each building, impressive. Get your cameras ready ! Family friendly. http://www.architecture.org/

Discover the Art Institute / Et si on se faisait une petite toile?

111 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60603, États-Unis

My favorite museum in town ! Two galleries are definitely a must-see : The Impressionnists’ one with an incredible series of Monet, Degas, Renoir and the Fauvistes/Cubistes’ one with Matisse, Picasso and many others. http://www.artic.edu/ Mon musée préféré dans cette ville. Je fonce directement à la salle des impressionnistes pour m’étourdir face au génie de Monet et puis je termine par une bouffée d’audace chez les fauvistes, cubistes et autres précurseurs d’art moderne. Quand à la poésie fantaisiste qui s’échappe des oeuvres de Chagall, elle ne me laisse jamais de marbre… For those who are still searching for more, don’t miss the Milwaukee Art Museum designed by Calatrava. Art with an astonishing view : http://www.mydistrikt.com/distrikt/18313410966567078601/post/9359630910952326254
