Visiting Chicago for the first time.

I am flying in for a Park Lane Jewelry Convention in Schaumberg Thursday July 28 and I will be flying out late Sun. Aug. 1. I wasn't sure if I should rent a car to be able to see some sites in Chicago or is public trans etc a good option? What are the top 3-5 sites/things to do on a short visit? I will have most the day Sunday till 5:00pm

Thanks

Thanks so much!!! I am staying by the convention center in Schaumburg.

I am flying into Midway and maybe taxi to Schumberg? What food do I need to try while I am there?
