Chicago: A place that conjures up images of tall steel frame skyscrapers set against the backdrop of Lake Michigan, providing the perfect setting for urban canals to flow between buildings and under bridges. While many people living outside the Windy City see it simply as a destination for business trips, it is undeniably one of the most Cosmopolitan US cities, making it a lively tourist destination.
While the city is an attraction in every season, other than winter, we find that summer is truly Chicago’s time to shine. With venues across the city to host a variety of events, and landmarks like Millenium Park, Cloud Gate, Willis (Sears) Tower, the Navy Pier, the Museum of Science and Industry, there is no shortage of ways to fill your days. Add to that the natural splendors of Lake Michigan, and it’s easy to see why this city tops our list of ideal destinations for solo travelers, business travelers, couples, and families alike. If that wasn’t enough, its Midwestern location and major international airport also make Chicago easy to get to from any part of the US.
