Chicago looks great from every angle, whether you’re exploring the city’s astonishing architecture during a guided tour or you’re enjoying the birds-eye view from the 103rd floor Sears Tower Skydeck and the 94th floor Hancock Observatory.
Chicago is a business center, with a diverse, powerhouse economy and a great tourism center, with world-renowned shopping, dining, museums, architecture, theater and great music.
Culture hounds will delight in the multitude of museums, including the prestigious Art Institute and the Chicago Historical Society.
You’ll find magic in such sparkling Chicago attractions as Navy Pier – the Midwest’s top tourist destination – and its boardwalk, 150-foot Ferris wheel, boat tours, and countless dining or shopping options.
Chicago is often called a friendly city – and you’ll agree when you accept the city’s warm invitation to sample such free attractions as Lincoln Park Zoo, home to more than 1,000 mammals, reptiles, and birds.
As far as nightlife is concerned, the city pulses with the beat of countless live performances of jazz, mainstream and indie rock, folk and country, world music, and – of course—blues.
Chicagoans are famous for taking two classics very seriously: pizza and hot dogs and while here one must sample these two favorites.
Good lodging options include the Chicago Marriott, which soars 46 stories into the downtown Chicago skyline amid the world-famous shops and restaurants on Michigan Avenue.
