I reckon I could get a couple more with a bit of effort but there isn't really much point.

 
I doubt there are any circumstances where I could accomplish passport #2. Good luck going for three.

Pequod's pizza for excellent deep dish (one off)

Al's Char house for Italian beef sandwiches
Any hot dog cart for a real Chicago dog

Are you interested in art?  Go to the Art Institute, and then walk up the street to the park with the "bean" sculpture for a great photo op
Straight out the front doors of the Art Institute is Adams Street.  Walk up Adams to the sign where Route 66 begins (another photo op), and then go to the Berghoff for lunch.  The Berghoff holds the first liquor license issued in Chicago when prohibition was repealed.

Further south along the lake front is the museum campus.  There's the Field Museum of Natural History, the Adler Planetarium, and the Shedd Aquarium, not to mention the Museum of Science and Industry.

HAVE FUN!
 
It was my first time to Chicago 2 years ago to see the Frozen Four college hockey tournament. 
Stayed at the AC Hotel 630 N Rush St, Chicago, IL 60611. Was just opened when we went. Modern Euro style accommodations.
These were walking distance from the hotel. And 2 blocks from Michigan Ave and all the shopping you could ever want.
If you like steak, Ditka's Restaurant. The 8 of us guys really enjoyed the meal. {#Hungry}
Uno's original Deep Dish Pizza restaurant.

Take in a Cubies game if you like baseball. And even if you don't, just go and check it off a bucket list. {#Lol}

Looking for some tips on upcoming (Sep) trip to (flying into) London.  Also looking to plan side trips to either Bath, or Lille France and then Bruges.  Originally was planning to do Bath, Bruges then back to London, but it looks like the trip from Bath to Bruges would be a full day, and we will only be there for 9 days and dont want to waste too much time travelling.  Tanks a lot.  
 
Are you looking for hotels or B&B’s? If you want to stay in North London (25 min on the tube to the city center), here’s a great B&B:
https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/17665879?location=Blake%20Road%2C%20London%2C%20UK&adults=1&children=0&infants=0&source_impression_id=p3_1563384002_p6fiuBuRJVTtnprn

If you want a hotel, Strand Palace Hotel is great, but more expensive, of course. It’s close to Covent Garden, though.
https://www.hotels.com/ho114409/the-strand-palace-hotel-london-united-kingdom/?locale=en_US&pos=HCOM_US

And get an Oyster card, especially if you plan to come again, it's valid forever. The fare is about half price. If you want to go to Oxford, this bus is good! https://x90.oxfordbus.co.uk

If you want any specific information about shopping in London, just ask!

Personally, I love the little town, Burford in the Cotswolds . There's a hotel/restaurant called The Lamb Inn - it's wonderful!

We're planning on visiting Britain next spring for our tenth anniversary. Neither of us has ever been to Europe.

We'll be able to spend two full weeks "in country" - maybe a few days more. Since P has ear issues that can cause her quite a lot of pain when flying, we plan to book non-stop flights both ways. This will require us to use the airport in Dallas, because there are no non-stop flights from OKC. We'll fly into London, spend a few days there and then work our way west to Cornwall and Wales, possibly as far as Dublin. It makes sense to fly back from say Cardiff or Dublin, instead of wasting time traveling back to London for the return flight.

I know there are some pretty savvy international travelers here, any advice would be appreciated.

 
In Cornwall is a village called St. Ives.....old fishing village......there is a pub there called The Sloop....dates back to 1300-ish. The building only goes back to about 17-something, but nonetheless, a drink and plate of grub there is worth it just for the sense of history and the smuggling deals done and piracy actions planned in its darker corners....and low ceilings because folks were shorter back then....a car rental and drive to the site where Marconi first transmitted across the Atlantic is f interest if you like things radio, which you might...might as well go on from there to Land End....and a Cornish Cream tea anywhere along the way id ALWAYS worth it!
There is also a chapel St Uny nearby, dates back to about 1100....earlier actually if I remember correctly....like 900-something AD...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Uny%27s_Church,_Lelant

London is cool just to get on a bus and see where it goes to.....museums, art, theatre, concerts, marjets, history....cool city

Anyone have any "unique" travel tips for a few days in Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh?  Not too interested in museums and such...more general sights, eating and drinking.

 
I would go to the Laphroaig, Ardbeg & Lagavulin distilleries
and see Radiohead on June 23 at the Glastonbury Festival
