  • We ate at the food court in the lower level, the food was excellent. The store itself is not welcoming, not clean. Many elevators and escalators are not working Carol  more »
  • Great retro architecture for this store with 9 floors and a beautiful mosaic Vault. Me who doesn't like to go shopping I followed my wife with great pleasure! In addition we found what we were looking for at great prices for branded products, everyone was happy!

  • The store is huge, so take advantage of the postings on the walls and by the elevators to see which items are on which floor. Several floors have places to eat, and we stopped for a drink on the lower...  more »

  • This card was the best choice I ever made during my trip. It was CHEAPER and very convenient. No hassles at all, and very easy to use this card and very practical. If you are planning to spend various days at one city is worth to buy this card. It saves a lot of money, time, and you will enjoy, even saving time in line attraction entrance some times... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
  • We loved having the Go Chicago Card to adventure wherever we wanted to in the two days we were there. There were more options than we could possibly take advantage of. However, it was nice to be able to just go explore each place and not feel like you had to spend the whole day there if you really didn't want to. Allowed for flexibility for our family of 5. I highly recommend and will do again. We have also used the Go San Diego Card, love that one too!
  • Loved it! We picked the two day card knowing we had a lot to cram into the 36hrs we were spending in Chicago. The Go Card made it happen. We reviewed the details of each place we wanted to see, made itenerary according to schedules, boarded the Big Red Bus... And we saw the city. What fun! Suggestion: Do your research, pick the sights, check schedules, read reviews/tips/advice. Do the aquarium early. Do the Sky Ledge super early...or you will waste your day standing in lines.
  • We had a great time using the Go Chicago Card. It took only 5 min to go online, pay for the go card, and download the app to our cell phones. The instructions on the app helped us to find exactly where we should go for fast entry into different venues. We experienced a lot more of Chicago with the Go Chicago Card than we would have without the card. We'd definitely purchase the card again if we get back to Chicago. As one recommendation to other travelers - you can extend your days on the hop-on-hop-off tour for only $5 per day. We used the tour every day to get to the different sites on the Go card.
  • Chicago is fantastic and the best way to see all the attractions is via Go Chicago Card! You get free entry to the best of the best things to see! No fuss, no problem! You even get to see things that are SO WORTHWHILE and that you wouldn't see If you were paying each thing. Don't think twice! Believe me, It is the best option. You'll be very pleasantly surprised!

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area.
