OK so the last week of December, I'm taking the girlfriend down to Chicago. Last time we went, we managed to drive by the Apple store downtown, but she wouldn't let me stop. Over the months, I've convinced her its not a geeky store, but a hip place, so she agreed to let me stop this time. My question is, I assume that there is some sort of mass transit that can take me there, but how? Last time we were there I saw the elevated train, that run anywhere near there? Also, where should we stay. We don't want to drive around at all, if possible. Mass transit nearby is nice (I'm from Iowa, I know its gonna be cold to walk around). In addition, I would like to know where else to visit. I'm alredy taking a week (unpaid) off of work for this trip, so anywhere that is cheap would be a major plus. Please let me know! Thanks!
