Chicago has something for just about everyone. There are world class baseball, football and basketball teams. Beautiful museums and parks. An iconic skyline with some of the tallest buildings in the world and a history steeped in some of the great names of architecture. These and other attractions draw millions of visitors to the Windy City each year to experience this one of a kind metropolis.
Located on the shores of Lake Michigan , Chicago sees its fair share of winter weather, but the spring and summer months are ideal vacation time. Visitors can shop some of the most exclusive retailers in the country or sample cuisine from world class chefs who have made Chicago their home. On the other hand, they can sample the city’s many hot dog vendors or eat some Chicago-style pizza.
Museum lovers will want to check out the Art Institute, the Field Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The city is also home to a Nature Museum, a Childrens Museum, a Planetarium, and a Museum of Science and Industry. For stunning views from Chicago’s tallest buildings, check out the John Hancock Observatory or Skydeck Chicago (formerly known as the Sears Tower). Those who want to save money should consider buying a Go Chicago Card to gain access to a variety of attractions for one low price.
