Boasting bold architecture and breathtaking skyline, Chicago is against the backdrop of Lake Michigan. With outstanding museums, shopping, and 20+ Michelin starred restaurants, the Windy city is the perfect destination to immerse yourself in American culture.
Start by visiting the Magnificent Mile, a vibrant avenue that boasts over 460+ shops, luxury hotels, and a wealth of cool restaurants. Make sure to stop at Millennium Park, easily recognisable by 'The Bean', a shiny steel sculpture at the centre of the park. Take in a concert, or visit the Art Institute of Chicago, which houses works by van Gogh, Monet, and Warhol.
Head South to find the Museum Campus, a park that boasts more exceptional museums. Watch amazing star shows at the Alder Planetarium, explore what lies beneath the sea at the Shedd Aquarium, and discover dinosaurs and past wonders at the Field Museum of Natural History. If you fancy something a little different then why not climb the Willis Tower? At the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, you can step out onto a glass Skydeck and take in an amazing bird’s eye view of Chicago and beyond.
If you are a sports fan, then Chicago will not disappoint; the city is filled with great teams. Check out Michael Jordan’s team, the Chicago Bulls, or choose between two baseball greats: the Cubs or the White Sox. If you prefer NFL, Chicago is home to the Chicago Bears. Hockey fan? Chicago also boasts the 2015 Ice Hockey Champions the Blackhawkes.
