visiting, looking for shops


Hello Illinois. I'm visiting the area (more like working) for as week and might have the chance to explore a bit. Are there any interesting stores in the downtown area or even Rosemont?

My favorites from the ones that I've been to have to be Old Orchard Aquarium in Skokie and if you don't mind driving a little west of Rosemont, there is Aquarium Adventure in Hoffman Estates.

Aquarium Adventure in Hoffman is pretty good. Mark up is high, but i believe they are having a 40% off sale at the moment.

Do you have just freshwater tanks or saltwater as well?
