Visit Chicago

Introduction

The 'windy city' of Chicago got its nickname from its unique politics, not the weather, so you can expect a laid back city built for all seasons, with world-class museums, miles of lakefront vistas, award-winning restaurants and luxury hotels. The 'Magnificent Mile' of Michigan Avenue has plenty to keep you entertained with lots of shops, as will the 250 local designers to be found in neighbourhood boutiques.

As the home of the legendary blues, expect free downtown and neighbourhood festivals with some of the world's best musicians. Chicago is the city where the skyscraper was born and you can take a tour to discover the architecture of Chicago's buildings and historical hotels or take advantage of plenty of free tourist attractions.
