It's actually Cameron's House in the movie, but the house where the Ferrari was wrecked went up for sale this year and you can tour it (if you can convince a realtor you're serious about buying it).

The first thing the gang does in Chicago is check out the view from then Sears Tower's sky deck. Since changed to Willis Tower, there are daily tours to the sky deck and you can get just as wierded out as Cameron did.

For lunch visit a fine dining restaurant on Rush Street.
Home of the fictional "Che Quis". The French restaurant Bueller crashes is "Che Quis" which is a pun, as said aloud it would be "Shakeys", the pizza chain. "Che Qui" means 'to whom' in French. John Hughes makes the joke because Shakey's was one of the few things he like about living in LA.

Here are some of the dining options on Rush st. http://chicago.citysearch.com/list/85611
