Chicago

Chicago is situated right on the Lake Michigan where the city beaches attract tourists and locals during the warm summer months. For all first-visitors the Sears Tower is not only the landmark of the city but it should be the first sight to visit and to enjoy the view from the 103rd floor. In the elevator on the way up you will feel like blasting off. For more spectacular views you can hop on a boat and enjoy a different view. Chicago also offers interesting museums like the Museum of Science and Industry, the Cernan Earth and Space Center or the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum. For dining and entertainment at night the Navy Pier has a lot to offer. Watch out for the two performance stages and activities around.

Sights in Chicago

Sights in Chicago
Naval Museum
They are quite nice to look at, the smart uniforms of the US Navy. Depending on situation and rank the officers and soldiers march in service, full or dinner dress over the vessel. At the Great Lakes Naval Museum in Chicago you might not see them live in action, maybe individuals, but Navy fans will learn everything about the US Navy and their history.   The museum in the Northern party of the city is not big, yet, it is an official department of the Navy museum in Washington DC. In this way curations and new collections depend on what sponsors and patrons will donate. With this money the experts interpret the past of the largest naval unit in the world. Special emphasis is put on the only training camp of the Navy at this very space. In order to bond with the up-and-coming they will explain how to turn civilians into seamen. Furthermore the museum offers courses for children, for example on the history of fingerprints. Of course kids will also be able to put their own thumbs on ink and paper.

Avec
Restaurants that are usually referred to as icons mostly turn out not to be. As an exception however, this proves true to the Avec. In 2003 it was opened as a wine bar, but soon enough it became clear that the kitchen plays the first fiddle. The successful concept is supported by moderate prices and a wine menu with affordable recommendations that you've never heard of. Also the styling of the restaurant is legendary: an elongated room, completely dressed in red cedarwood. It might be a bit narrow, but the kitchen compensates for the sardine can feeling. A mixture of Mediterranean, Italian and Spanish flavours - spicy, sweet and down-to-earth, mostly all the three combined. In any case, Avec fans always order the focaccia and dates filled with chorizo and coated with bacon. The sweet variant is convincing, too: dates filled with mascarpone, marinated in espresso. But you also have to try the crispy codfish with almond sauce and grapefruit - as well as many other dishes. Therefore it can be said: one visit is certainly not enough.

Park Hyatt
The Park Hyatt could also pass as a stylish museum of modern art. Evidence is given already by the lobby of the 67 level building. Black columns frame an original piece by Gerhard Richter. At the restaurant you can get inspired by a glass art work by Dale Chihuly. Even in the rooms the furniture in the style of legendary designer Charles Eames radiate a contemporary chic. You might want to stay a bit longer in the bathrooms: extra-size bath tubs, candles and window seats with cinemascope views on Chicago are part of the standard. Almost every room additionally offers a free view on the famous Water Tower and Lake Michigan. Another exquisite feature is the NoMI restaurant with its starred cuisine. Advice for guests suffering from allergies: the hotel offers special rooms where all materials are anti-allergy tested and the air is cleaned through a filter system. Rooms from 270 euros.

Oak Street
The name stands for a whole bunch of upscale shopping addresses, ranging from the store of international couture houses and American luxury brands to local boutiques, hairdressers and wellness salons. It's where you can purchase Christian Louboutin's stilettos with their legendary red soles, succumb to extraordinary lingerie at Agent Provocateur or treat yourself with one of Hermès' history-charged silk scarves. After the former Esquire Theater had already been transformed into a high end fashion temple, more luxury tenants are queuing up for novel projects. Among them there is former Gucci designer Tom Ford, the casual label by Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas Y-3, the elegant Parisian fashion house Lanvin as well as the Italian glamour brand Versace. More reconstruction work is yet to be done - to be continued ...
