The Windy City provides everything you’d want in a metropolitan city: distinctive neighborhoods, a range of shopping choices and excellent museums, Even better, Chicago has all that in a clean environment with Midwestern friendliness, all neighboring the beautiful Lake Michigan. Centrally-located (and also more extravagant) hotels can be found in the Loop, while budget-friendly options are located slightly north of downtown.
The Best In Fine Dining
- Alinea is arguably Chicago’s most celebrated restaurant, with a seasonal tasting menu and a three-star Michelin rating. It’s modern American cuisine with a dash of molecular gastronomy, resulting in otherworldly dishes like an edible, helium-filled, green apple taffy balloon.
- Get your reservations ahead of time for Girl and the Goat, where the menu changes frequently, and diners can find mouthwatering platters like wood oven roasted pig face, a perpetual customer favorite.
Tours To Take In Chicago
- More than just a typical boat tour, the Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruises are helmed by volunteers passionate about the city’s rich history and architecture along the banks of the peaceful Chicago River.
- For travelers who don’t mind standing out on the sidewalk, hop on a Segway Tour for a comprehensive, informative, and most importantly fun circuit of the city without tiring out your legs.
