Enjoy the underground experience and do it on both levels. Elevate your game! Excellent views from on top.

If you like bridges, rivers, boats, architecture, then take walk along the Chicago river and see loads of examples.

There are plenty of mass transit ways to get there as well as an Uber. Also plenty to do shopping experience wise and dining.

I'd use public transportation to get downtown instead of trying to drive and park downtown. And there is too much traffic to really see anything while you're driving.
