Things to Do in Chicago in December

The Art Institute of Chicago

With a vast collection of art from all over the world and of every medium, the Art Institute of Chicago is a must-see museum for those traveling to Chicago. Featured artists in the collection include Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Salvador Dali.

Pizzaria Uno

Thought one of two Chicago pizza places that claim to be the originator of Chicago-style deep dish pizza (the other being Lou Malnati's), Pizzeria Uno is a favorite among travelers to Chicago. Its original location on Ohio and Wabash is interesting, but Pizzeria Due - the second location - is also a block away.
