    Chicago is one of the best places in which to celebrate New Years Eve. There are many bars and clubs throughout Chicago that cater to people looking to for a party atmosphere. One of the best places is the Drake Hotel. This venue, and most others, fill up quickly, however, so it's best to obtain reservations. If you'd like to celebrate New Years Eve away from the bar scene, however, the Mystic Blue NYE Fireworks Dinner Cruise and Odyssey Cruises NYE on Lake Michigan are great alternatives.

    If I were coming from the UK and wanting to experience the 4th of July, I would probably head for New York City, New York or Washington, D.C. I'm sure there are many other wonderful places, but New York City really knows how to hold celebrations. They have great fireworks displays and great New Year's Eve celebrations. T.here is probably more history in Washington, D.C. or Boston On a personal side, I no longer attend fireworks live, I prefer to watch them on television. Columbus, Ohio holds fireworks on the 4th of July along with activities for families all day long. Their fireworks are called, "Red, White and Boom". It all depends on whether you want the big city experience or would rather go to a small town for their celebrations. Smaller fireworks and a smaller town experience can be just as rewarding. If you are going with friends, go along with them, wherever they are going and share the experience. If you hate large crowds and heavy traffic, watch it on television and keep changing the channels to see what all is happening in different cities. I hope you have success in making your decision, and welcome to the USA.

    Absolutely, Chicago is a very safe city, not to mention being incredibly fun for kids at that age. There are loads of activities and attractions for them to enjoy, ranging from engaging museums and a world-class aquarium to outdoor activities and free concerts. Better yet, Chicago is a very walkable city and you'll feel quite safe strolling the downtown streets (despite the fast-paced, big-city feel!).

    Gino's pizza for deep dish. The Berghoff is my favorite: old school German place with dark interior, great beers and hearty food. Billy Goat Tavern is worth a stop for tourists -- it was the setting for John Belushi's famous "cheezborger" skit on SNL.
