Chicago was the city that defined the skyscraper in the late 19th century and the elegantly designed steel-frame high-risers of its skyline continue to dominate the atmosphere of the Windy City. Take a cruise up the Chicago River and you will be awestruck not only by the size of the buildings, but also the immense ambition and prosperity that have underwritten their construction over the last century.
Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes of North America, Chicago may draw less attention to itself than its coastal big-city rivals, New York and Los Angeles, but city life here is no less rich and colorful. Chicago is home to the electrifying Chicago blues and the originator of house music in the 1980s. The city has a prolific theatre scene which excels at improvisational comedy. And it sizzles with artistic creativity, as its myriad outdoor artworks bear witness to. Art lovers should make their way to the lush grounds of Grant Park and visit the Art Institute of Chicago, which houses fine art from all times and from all over the world.
There’s no dearth of shopping opportunities either. The irresistibly named Magnificent Mile covers over 13 blocks and is home to a wide variety of malls, boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Try out the favorite local foodstuff: Chicago deep-dish pizza. Or tuck into a Chicago-style hot dog, typically enjoyed at sport matches, whether it be baseball, American football or hockey.
