I love Chicago in particular because of its sky scraper skyline. It is the mix of old and new buildings which makes it spectactular to walk through the city centre. And it is ever changing, more and more buildings are popping up. It makes me always wonder what are people doing for a living who live in the sky scrapers...
Not only along Michigan Avenue, but also at State Street, North & Clyborn and in the suburbs are many shopping possibilities in existance.
I say in the asian malls you can escape the heat. In Chicagos malls you may warm up from the cold. (In summertime of course also chill)
Plenty of restaurants, bars also make it a great spot to relax, hang out.
Unlike other american cities there is also a good public transport system, and if you stay in the city I recommend taking the Red Line.
Even from or to the O'Hare airport you could go by Blue Line underground train.
Check out the museums, the Zoo, the Botanical Garden in Northbrook, the Synfonic Orchestra, theatres, landmarks, plenty of information to scroll through.
