Hyde Park Neighborhood
If you have one day to visit, check out the Seminary Co-op, 57th Street Books or Powell's book stores and eat at Cedars Mediterranean Kitchen, Medici's (Italian American), Noodles (Thai) or enjoy a slice of Chicago pizza. Visit the Oriental Institute (this museum contains magnificent archaeological treasures from the Near East and Africa from the famed University of Chicago collection), Smart Museum of Art or the DuSable Museum of African American History. If the weather is beautiful, walk down 55th Street to the Point for an incredible view of the Chicago skyline at the shore of Lake Michigan.
If you have two days to visit, explore the Museum of Science and Industry or take public transportation to the many beautiful sites of downtown Chicago. We especially recommend Millennium Park, the Art Institute, a concert at the Symphony Center or the show of your choice. Chicago has public transport to reach most any destination.
