    There are a number of things to see in Chicago. Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower), Magnificent Mile, The Art Institute of Chicago, and Grant Park are all places worth visiting. Also, if you're lucky, catch a Cubs game at Wrigley Field. If you're looking for a nice day trip, head over to Oak Park where you can visit Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio. The area of Lincoln Park offers some great shops and restaurants. If you're feeling like Italian, head over to Little Italy, which is a short cab ride away from downtown Chicago. I recommend Tuscanny. Reservations aren't needed if you're going for lunch or an early dinner, but it does tend to get busy around 7. For more ideas, read our picks for top attractions.

    Best I can tell, a "Shedd Pass" is just a fancy word for a day ticket! If you do the math, admission for your family comes out to $85.80, assuming your two older kids are under 12. Family membership for a year is $115, so worth the savings if you plan on visiting the Shedd more than once.

    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.
