    I'm off to Chicago in February, thanks to a great value Lufthansa "Mileage Bargain" Business Class redemption.

    Tickets already booked for the Chicago Blackhawks (slightly excited) and Chicago Bulls (very excited), but if anyone has any "must do" tips for Chicago in February (other than staying indoors with the heating turned fully up) then I'd be grateful for them.

    Cheers Joe. I'm Lufthansa Mileage Bargaining it in Business Class, then staying at the "iconic" (apparently) Hilton Chicago as a Diamond member, so will certainly be reporting back.

    The gangster tour is always good fun and I also recommend the Chicago architecture tour. The latter will tell you all about the different skyscrapers, when and how they were built, etc.

    If it's a nice day, ice skating in Millennium Park near the iconic Chicago bean is good fun. It's right next to Tavern in the Park too which serves pretty good food.

    Don;t forget to go to the top of the Willis or Hancock buildings. The Willis tower has a glass floor at the top which has a habit of freaking people out.

    Magnolia Bakery (108 N. State Street at Block 37) also serves the best cheesecake ever, and is right downtown in the loop.

    I'd probably avoid Navy Pier unless you like screaming kids, tacky souvenirs, and sky high prices.

    Enjoy your time in Chicago it's a great city!
