I have been a Chicago resident my entire life, so to tell you about what is fun and great is easy.

For a family day or (recommended 2 days) you have to go 45 minutes north to Gurnee for the
Great America day. If you cannot have a good time there you need to have AN OPERATION
TO WAKE YOURSELF UP! HAHA!!!! For food in downtown Chicago you have a multitude
of places to play and eat. Get to Ontario street and go the distance from the lake to the
highway. you have Excaliber, a 4 story bar with live music dancing, all types shapes and sizes of
people that are fun! You have Mortons Steakhouse and Ruth Chriss steakhouse and Lawrys
there is so much all you need is a great appetite and its easy to fill! If you like flea markets we
have indoor ones in Stone Park at North ave and Mannheim or at Lake and Mannheim or in
Glendale Heights at North ave and Glen Ellen rd or

You can go to the best indoor at highway 41/294 and 7 MILE rd, thats about 25 minutes over
the Wisconsin border, but really worth the trip! In the summer they also have outdoors, about
500 venders just outside ! locally you can go west to Montana Charlies at hwy 55 and Joliet rds
about 1 block south on Joliet rd, this market is all out doors but real interesting stuff at a great
deal. 1 time a month at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St Charles or a lot closer 3rd sun of the
month go to the Rosemont Horizon/Tweeter Center. This is the original fleamarketeers, the
Loews brothers, their father started the longest lasting flea market setup in the early 60's in
Wheeling at the drive in. Stay right downtown and go to Navy Pier, fun for the entire family. I
always just recommend bring money and the family and the adventure will seek you out!
Chicago is a lot more fun than most places and believe me I lived on my motorcycle for 3 years
as I traveled around the United States meeting people in every crevice of the country!
