WELCOME TO Chicago
Chicago is a huge city that's well known for house music, blues, jazz, comedy, shopping, dining, architecture, and fine cultural attractions. As the hub of the Midwest, Chicago is easy to find — its picturesque skyline calls across the waters of huge freshwater Lake Michigan, an impressive sight that soon reveals world-class museums of art and science, miles of sandy beaches, huge parks, public art, and perhaps the finest downtown collection of architecture in the world. With a wealth of iconic sights and neighborhoods to explore, there's enough to fill a visit of weeks or even months without ever seeing the end. Prepare to cover a lot of ground: the meaning of Chicago is only found in movement, through its subways and archaic elevated tracks, and eyes raised to the sky. What makes Chicago the best city in the Midwest is not only the diversity of each of the communal neighborhoods, but also its beautiful waterfront location bustling with cultural dining, exhilarating nightlife, and authentic historical architecture and atmosphere.
