As for global travel, as long as being white Americans doesn't mean immanent danger anything goes. Spain, South-East Asia, India, Croatia, Black Sea, etc. Chances are a cheap airfare to someplace will determine where we go.
As for Chicago, well that's a long shot. But The Boring Store would be destination #1.

The store is a combination spy-shop/after-school education program founded by novelist Dave Eggers who also started McSweeney's Magazine. Read this article for pictures and commentary on what may be the coolest place that "is not a spy store."
