    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.

    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.

    Things you should not miss out on in Chicago are: Sky Deck at Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower), Art Institute of Chicago, Shed Aquarium, Lincoln Park Zoo (FREE!), Navy Pier, and Millennium Park. Obviously you cannot see all of these in one day, so I suggest Willis Tower, Shed Aquarium, and Millennium Park. They're all very close to each other so you won't spend much time commuting.
