1. Giordano's or Lou Malnati's Deep Dish Pizza
People argue which is better. I've had both and like them both and if you've never been here chances are you won't know the difference. So ask your concierge which is closer to your hotel and eat!
2. Drinks at Signature Lounge (John Hancock Building), 96th floor
You don't have time for a bunch of tours and it's a great way to conserve your time. You get the same views as you would from the Sky Deck and the best part is you can switch the admission fee for a cocktail for about the same price. While it's a bit touristy, the views are breathtaking and certainly a great way to see the city after a long day.

5. Pick a Museum
Not everyone is artsy, but you don't have to be! We have amazing museums in this city: Art Institute, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, History Museum... the list goes on. I suggest the Art Institute because of some of the incredibly famous art that lives there including Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Monet's famous Haystacks, works by Rembrandt, Picasso, Renoir, Georgia O'Keeefe, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks (famously recreated into 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' with and is one of my favorites) and of course, Grant Wood's American Gothic.
