Which Days Inn are you at? I could probably let you know of some things to do around the one you are staying at. Some interesting shopping areas that aren't malls to check out in the city:
Michigan Avenue (Chicago or Grand Red Line Stop and walk towards the lake)
Belmont & Clark Area (Belmont Red Line Stop)
Damen & Milwaukee (Damen Blue Line Stop)

There are also a lot of good restaurants all over the place, though the best variety of them in one location is probably Lincoln Ave between North Ave. and Belmont.

If you want any more suggestions or have questions about what to do in the city, feel free to PM me or post here.

From Melrose Park its about 20 minutes at the most.

oops also try on Friday / Sat or Sunday ... Wollf's Flea market a huge indoor flea market on Manheim and North Ave in Melrose Park.

On Sunday, the same place has a huge outdoor flea market at the Allstate Arena. About 2 miles from the Hyatt hotel and not much farther from Melrose Park - http://www.cityinsights.com/chicago/wolff.htm


You might find an odd bargain or too if you like that type of thing. Sometimes good sports collectibles.

If you're looking for a show to see this weekend, perhaps something with a good amount of humor in it, you might want to take a look at Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind. Yes, it's a mouthfull, but I've been attending this show for several years now (it changes every week). It's on the corner of Foster and Ashland on the northside, near the lake. If you plan on showing up either Friday or Saturday night, get there early as they tend to sell out.

If you feel like wasting an entire day riding roller coasters, you can go to SIx Flags Great America up in Gurnee, IL. It's about a half hour drive north of the Hyatt.

We also have the following museums: Field Museum, Shed Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, Museum of Science and Industry, Art Institute of Chicago and a few smaller ones that I don't know very well.

If you're looking for something in particular, let me know and I'll see if I can think of something.
