Do you guys have some suggestions on what to visit in Chicago during the first two weeks of August? It will be my first time in the US.
Recently I got employed by an American bank and will have some training there. It looks great!
Sears Tower, and go to Milwaukee! Tons of boating to do on the Great Lakes, fishing, etc.
And you can always play "Dodge the Bullet"
if you get bored and can't go to other interesting places.

Shedd Aquarium: I asked for opinions on our fish forum (supposed to be good but I have not been there myself).
Sodomia delenda est
Gotta see the U-505!!
But you'll likely need advance reservations. Well worth it though! (the exhibit includes a walk through of the boat and an actual M4 Enigma machine). The Field Museum is awesome as well (I believe it's very near mv's Shedd Aquarium suggestion) ... it has a cave painting exhibit that should still be on when you're there.
