How to enjoy Chicago

With major league Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs and White Sox all based here, there’s plenty to keep even the most avid sports fan happy. For authentic Chicago, grab a deep pan pizza before heading to one of the city’s many blues bars.

  • Step out onto The Ledge of the Willis Tower Skydeck for a vertiginous thrill or charter a helicopter for an unforgettable skyline tour
  • Head to Navy Pier to catch a cruise on Lake Michigan or play among the lakeside attractions
  • Browse the indie bookstores and boutiques of Wicker Park, or sample the mouth-watering menus of the neighborhood’s many excellent restaurants

There’s something exciting about approaching the Windy City for the first time. You can feel a spine tingle of anticipation as you drive in and see the skyscrapers slowly emerging from the previously uninterrupted horizon. Or if flying to O’Hare or Midway, we defy you not to feel a frisson of thrill as you spot the Willis Tower, tall and aloof among the cluster of shorter buildings.

The skyline is a given on your must see list and can be enjoyed in many ways. But Chicago is much more than a bunch of tall buildings anchored in the Midwest. Nestled on the southern shores of Lake Michigan, President Obama’s home town is packed with cultural highlights with world class museums, theatres, ballet, orchestra, sport and, of course, blues.
