An October 2002 trip to Chicago by sitnsmile

Quote: We took our young daughter to the Science and Industry museum, Navy Pier, and Water Tower Place. It was a wonderful trip for the entire family. Chicago, Illinois, is a great city to visit.

Museum of Science & Industry

Attraction | "Museum of Science and Industry"

Quote:
It is an amazing array of hands on activities for all ages and beautiful and interesting displays of all facets of Industry and what makes up each industry. It also has a great emphasis on science and due to its depth and scope could easily fulfill home-schooled and institutional learning facility needs for field trips. I would recommend that every person who travels to Chicago should take the time to appreciate one of this country's great museums. It won't disappoint you.

Water Tower Place

Attraction

Quote:
It is architecturally beautiful. It has something for everyone. There are world renowned stores present in Water Tower Place. My favorite was the Chocolate Shop that offered a selection to make you drool. My wife and daughter were also ecstatic with their selection of chocolates. There is also a movie theater that runs first run movies located inside. It is a fun place to shop and window shop alike. The design of criss-crossing escalators, glass elevators, and glass walled balconies on multiple levels overlooking everything makes it an exiting place to be. It is a Chicago landmark and should be a must visit place on every visitors itinerary.
