Returning to the US for a holiday in a few months. We're going to Chicago and Ann Arbor, which will be a first for both of us. What should we do while we're there?

Also, I'm thinking about changing jobs.

The easy answer is to eat deep dish pizza. Which isn't wrong. The less common answer is to eat Italian beef. It's a roast beef sandwich dipped in au jus to put it simply.

Thank you for the recommendation! I wasn't aware of deep dish pizza being a Chicago thing, so we'll certainly keep an eye out for it. We're both kind of off meat, so I expect we'll skip the beef.

Are you from the Chicago area? Any galleries or museums or other sites you particularly recommend?

Also the Field Museum for a science experience

My family is from Chicago. I've never lived there. I'm Chicago adjacent.

The Art Institute of Chicago

I went there once and my dad had to leave early to beat traffic. I wanted to stay long enough that traffic died down while we were there
