Hold on to your hat in the Windy City!
Sure, it can get breezy, especially when winter gales blast off Lake Michigan (so think twice about Chicago in January and February!). What I really mean is there’s so much happening in America’s third-largest city that it will sweep you off your feet.
A financial, commercial and cultural hub for two centuries, Chicago has long impressed visitors. In the skyscraper’s birthplace, architecture stuns (and not merely for its height), while from park to pier, open spaces invite you to unwind and rejuvenate. You can shop ’til you drop in the town where Mr Selfridge declared that the customer is always right, style up or down for dinner (it will be memorable either way), and enjoy a rich jazz and blues heritage.
Get the most out of your stay with a Chicago City Pass, which gives you access to popular Shedd Aquarium, Skydeck Chicago (on the 103rd floor of the former Sears Tower), Field Museum (one of the largest natural history museums in the world), and your choice of three other top attractions.
This Chicago city guide is packed with ideas for things to see and do. Enjoy your visit.
