UofC is in Hyde Park, and if you take the red line to 55th Street you
can catch the 55th street bus to it, but the Southside bus service
sucks. They're usually late. Catch an express bus from downtown.

Do a search on Hyde Park for interesting things to do. If you like
museums, the Museum of Science and Industry is down there. I think the
Oriental Institute is also there.

I'm going to see Arcadia at the Court Theatre next week, so I know the
Court Theatre is there.

There's an interesting used bookstore, can't remember details. I can
ask my bookstore friend if you're interested.

Which neighborhood are you staying in?
