With Chicago’s soaring skyscrapers, big-city energy and tantalizing dining options, there’s no reason the Second City shouldn’t be your first vacation destination choice. Busy streets take you from one colorful neighborhood to the next, where modern architecture mingles with historic landmarks. When you smell the legendary deep-dish pizza, Italian beef sandwiches and hot dogs too good for ketchup, which specialty will win your approval? This is Chicago, the Windy City—full of flavor, bursting with cultural diversity, and a breeze to explore.

REASONS TO GO:
  • Chicago River: Take an architectural boat tour for phenomenal views of some of the city’s most iconic buildings. If you prefer to stay on land, enjoy a scenic stroll along the Chicago Riverwalk, which is especially beautiful at night, with the city lights glittering on the water.

  • Lake Michigan: Gaze at Chicago’s spectacular skyline from Oak Street Beach, or walk the famous Navy Pier at Ohio Street Beach. If you want to go for a beachfront bike ride without sand slowing you down, check out the paved Lakefront Trail.

  • Magnificent Mile: Shop high-end stores like Gucci and Chanel, and then head to the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center to experience 360 Chicago, which offers an unrivaled view of the city. Pro tip: You can enjoy the same view from the lounge on the 96th floor and have a drink for the same price as a ticket to the observation deck.

  • Millennium Park: Don’t miss this Chicago gem, home to the Crown Fountain, Frank Gehry’s dramatic Jay Pritzker Pavilion and the beloved Cloud Gate—also known as “The Bean”—a sculpture designed to resemble liquid mercury. If you’re visiting during the summer, check the Grant Park Music Festival calendar to catch a free concert.

  • Food: Chicago is a food city. Don’t leave without indulging in a slice of deep-dish pizza from Lou Malnati's Pizzeria or Giordano's. For a truly unforgettable dining experience, book a table at the three-Michelin-starred Alinea, often touted as one of the best restaurants in the world.

  • Wrigley Field: Head to Wrigleyville to cheer on the Chicago Cubs at this historic baseball park, the second-oldest major league park in the country. Wrigley Field also hosts concerts by some of the nation’s top musical artists.

WHEN TO GO: 
Chicago winters are famously frigid, but visitors who brave the chill are rewarded with magical holiday events, including the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival and the festive Christkindlmarket, modeled after a German marketplace. Plan a trip in March for an Irish extravaganza—from parades to pub crawls, Chicago goes all out for Saint Patrick’s Day, even dyeing the river green and illuminating skyscrapers with emerald lights. Summer brings perfect weather for a dip in Lake Michigan, along with popular events like the Taste of Chicago Festival in July. Music enthusiasts can choose from a wide range of festivals, such as the Chicago Blues Festival in June, Lollapalooza at the end of July, and the Chicago Jazz Festival just before Labor Day. If you visit during the crisp fall, you can join thousands of spectators on the second Sunday in October to cheer on the Chicago Marathon’s inspiring parade of runners. 

 
TRAVEL TIP: 
Word on the street is that many Broadway shows use Chicago as a trial stage before their big debuts in New York. See dazzling performances at local theaters like Goodman Theatre, Steppenwolf Theater Company or Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
