Two Hours in Chicago: What Do You Do?

By Joanna Miller in Miscellaneous on May 30, 2006 6:25PM

5_30_2005watertower.jpgYou have two hours of free time downtown with your 10-year-old son on a pre-paid trip that already includes King Tut, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, a harbor cruise, Hard Rock Café and Medieval Times. What do you do? (Besides drink heavily.)

That’s what one MetaFilter reader wants to know, and other readers are weighing in with their suggestions, which include:

- Millennium Park
- The Hancock
- A ride on the el
- The LEGO store
- Ed Debevic’s

We like the Red and Brown Line tour idea, and we’re fans of the Cultural Center and the Harold Washington Library. But, then again, we’re not a 10-year-old boy.

Give your two cents here.
