    Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and the rest of the TODAY Show gang are Chicago-bound!

    The team's Great American Adventure series takes them to the Windy City on Wednesday, May 22.

    Matt and Savannah, along with Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist, will broadcast from Cloud Gate, aka The Bean, in Millennium Park and explore everything the town has to offer.

    To get in the spirit, we're asking viewers what they love most about Chicago. Using the hashtag #TODAYAdventure and #TODAYinChicago, tell the show's anchors why this town is a must-visit destination and what they should see while they're here.

    Here's what NBCChicago's Faceboook friends tossed out earlier this year.

    C-man ChiTown Escabedo stop by Inas Restaurant in the West Loop for breakfast, Great food and Ina is a beautiful person.

    Kirsten Cimmarusti Have Wayne Johnson give you a tour of the Robie House, have lunch at Al's Beef. Try a visit at the Wiener Circle and you can't visit Chicago without a slice of Chicago style pizza.The Lincoln Park Conservatory is beautiful and right next door is the Lincoln Park Zoo!!

    Alisa Bailey Stevens
    The Wiener Circle!

    Marc Yarbrough
    Uno's! And breweries...visit lots of local breweries!

    Suzy Mayberry Mars The Original Billy Goat Tavern is like going back in time. It's true Chicago. The menu board is yellowed, you can feel the sprint of newsman Mike Royko there's that darned cubs curse and let's not forget the famous SNL skit. They really do take your order like that!!!

    Laura Parker
    Harolds Chicken on the 87th and the Dan Ryan.

    Danielle Procopio For some good Chicago style pizza- Lou Malnatis and Chicago style hot dogs- Portillo's. For a great upscale meal with an amazing view- The Signature room at the top of the Hancock building. For sites around the downtown area- definitely Millennium Park, The Art Institute or any museum campus, Navy Pier, the Skydeck at the Willis Tower, the Lincoln Park zoo, shopping on the Magnificent Mile and the Sports venues (Wrigley, US Cellular, United Center, Soldier Field). Have Fun!!

    Nicholson If either u guys love some doughnuts, u gotta visit Old Fashioned Doughnuts on 112th & Michigan in Roseland...hot, fresh, a city treasure.

    Trisha Ratazak Brown Buddy Guy's Legends!

    Sarah Stec Hot Doug's (!), The Aviary, Moto, La Sirena Clandestina, Bridgeport Bakery and definitely Pequod's for pizza! The modern wing of the Art Institute, Palmisano Park and 12th Street beach are beautiful.

    Alison Coble Molly's Cupcakes!!

    Edwyn Jae Jenkins I Humboldt Park is one of the under appreciated gems of Chicago. Also a visit to 'Oz' park where there are statues of Dorothy, The Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Lion. Also the very under appreciated Miniature rooms collection at The Art Institute. A quick visit to the Cultural Arts Center and the Tiffany Dome. I can't leave out our world class Harold Washington Library building. I think some one else mentioned it, bit the 'Robie' house is a not miss tour. Yes, the greatest of all prairie style houses is right here in Chicago.
