I like seeing Buckingham Fountain.
I like the Magnificent Mile in the Summer.
Ride the River boat from Madison St to Mich ave Bridge.
Take the River cruise of Chicago Architecture, fantastic!
The"L" train is unique to Chicago.
Great concerts at Wrigley Field and Soldier Field, top name entertainment comes to those venues.
Chicago has wonderful, ethnic neighborhood, street fairs that I've seen on Funcapers in previous years.
Chinatown, south of Loop, is fun.
Brunch at Ritz Carlton on Sunday. Do it once, at least.
Who hasn't heard of Second City in Rush street area? Good anytime of the year.

A great thing to do right in the area is going to the Improv Comedy Club in Wood field mall. I have seen a wide range of national acts there from Chris Titus from the tv show Titus on Fox, Alonzo Bodden who has done comedy all over the world, Paul Rodriguez who has been in movies, and Adam Ferrara who was in Rescue Me and other tv shows like Nurse Bettie. The food is great and the service is very good. If you are looking for some fun between Thursday and Sunday check them out.
