Chicago, a city rich in history and culture, draws millions of visitors a year.
The nation’s third-largest city has something for everyone. Plan a weekend visiting iconic Chicago sights like Millennium Park, Navy Pier, The Ledge at Willis Tower, The Bean, and Lincoln Park Zoo. Situated on the beautiful Lake Michigan, outdoor enthusiasts can explore the city’s shoreline and trails or stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk. Shopping is an equally a must-see attraction in Chicago. Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile is 13 blocks of over 460 retail shops.
If there is one thing that Chicago knows, it’s sports. Arguably one of the best sports cities, Chicago’s five major professional sports teams – the Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs and White Sox, collectively have 18 championship trophies. Sports fans will want to cheer for their favorite team. Catch a baseball game at the Wrigley Field, one of the oldest baseball parks around, to see the Cubs, head to the United Center to watch the Bulls and Blackhawks or celebrate a touchdown at Soldier Field.
Renowned for its vibrant and diverse food culture, Chicago’s culinary scene is a mix of classics and fine dining and Michelin-starred restaurants. A visit to the Windy City is not complete without trying classic Chicago foods. Come hungry, grab a famous deep-dish Chicago pizza, Chicago-style hot dog (for a truly authentic experience, be sure to ask for it dragged through the garden) or Italian beef sandwich.
The city’s public transportation system provides easy and affordable access to get around. Chicago’s elevated train, the L, and bus network connects visitors to any one of the city’s 77 neighborhoods, each with its own sense of identity.
More than just the “Windy City”, Chicago boasts four distinct seasons with mild spring and fall temperatures, pleasant summers, and snowy winters. But no matter the time of year, there is always something happening in Chicago.
