Built on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago (the 'Windy City') is known for its inspiring architecture, beautiful lake views, and deep dish pizza.
A great way to see Chicago is by a river tour: enjoy the beautiful Chicago skyline, and see the Wrigley Building, Willis Tower and Tribune Tower. Don't miss visiting the Navy Pier, a Chicago landmark with over 50 acres of parks, gardens, shops, restaurants and attractions of every kind. Grant Park is Chicago's principal downtown park; the front near Lake Michigan provides a favorite track for many strollers, joggers and bikers.
Two great museums are the Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Contemporary Art. Children of all ages will enjoy the Lincoln Park Zoo, as well as the interactive Children's Museum. And who can resist shopping? Chicago is home to some of the finest shopping in the world including The Magnificent Mile and newly renovated State Street.
