Top Things You Need to Do: Make the Most of Chicago CE
Fancy yourself a match for the windy city? We’ve created a CMS guided tour to the breathtaking museums and visually stunning attractions of Chicago.
Chicago for the Curious Traveler
We’re taking CMS to Chicago for Dr. John Nosti’s Full Mouth Rehabilitation: Live in the Op course in September. We want you to get the most out of the experience. For that reason, we’ve hand-picked some of our favorites sights and attractions.
Get a Selfie with the Bean
It wouldn’t be a satisfactory trip to Chicago without a picture posing in front of the Bean. Basically, it proves you were there. You can find the famous Bean located in Millennium Park near Lake Michigan. While you’re there, admire this sculptural eccentricity and consider making your way to the lake for a waterside perspective of the city. (“The Bean” is actually a nickname, the sculpture’s real title is “Cloud Gate.”)
Catch a Glimpse of the Sears Tower (Re-named Willis Tower)
Like the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa of Dubai, the Sears Tower is know for its impressive height. Once you see it, you can check “visit second tallest building in the USA” off your bucket list.
Embrace Your Artistic and Historical Sides
The museums in Chicago are world-class. The Art Institute of Chicago is a magnificent home to stunning artwork. Spend some time in its halls and you’ll leave feeling more refined than ever.
While you’re at it, visit the Field Museum of Natural History. It’s home to the T. rex Sue, which is the most complete fossil ever discovered.
Shedd Aquarium can also provide a day’s worth of entertainment. Get up close and personal with Nemo and the rest of the deep sea.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
If you’re a bit of a shopaholic or love window shopping, Magnificent Mile is where you’ll find upscale stores and a lively atmosphere.
Dr. Nosti has some prime suggestions for where to eat:
- Gene and Georgetti: “The best authentic Italian (and Steak) … and this is coming from a Jersey Italian!”
- Piece Pizza: For your necessary pizza fix.
- Shaw’s Crab House: Oysters and fresh seafood.
