    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.

    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.

    Your best bet is to follow W Adams St (by cab or on foot) east to Grant Park, where you'll find both the stellar Art Institute of Chicago and the city's lovely Millennium Park. The Art Institute has a very good permanent Asian collection that spans 5,000 years and includes 35,000 pieces of art. Better yet, the museum is free for under 12s. Pack a picnic or grab a sandwich on your way over there to enjoy the park, which has lots of green spaces and Anish Kapoor's intriguing Cloud Gate sculpture. Just don't forget to get back to the station in time for your train out! Best, Alistair (Away.com)

    Being long standing favorites in the city the pizzeria that you visited was probably Pizzeria Uno or Due, (same company)known for their deep dish pizza. There are a few other local favorites but these would be most attractive to tourists.
