There’s Something for Everyone in Chicago


Affectionately dubbed “The Windy City” by locals and visitors alike, Chicago is famed for its stunning architecture, tall skyscrapers, and incredible museums. Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, it also offers opportunities for fishing and boating. And let’s not forget about its world-famous pizzas and other foods, which will leave you wishing for a larger stomach!


A Crash Course in Chicago Travel

One of the first things to be aware of when visiting Chicago is that it can get very cold there. If you’re visiting during the late fall and winter months, we highly recommend bringing hats, gloves, closed-toed shoes, and a warm coat. Chicago has reliable cab services, just make sure to tip the standard rate of 15% to your driver afterward. Or, if you plan to do a lot of traveling within the city, your cheapest option is probably to buy an unlimited pass for the L (elevated train) or bus system.


Things To Do In Chicago

If you’re only in Chicago for a couple of hours and just want to get a good walk in before catching your next flight, we recommend going straight to Millenium Park. Here, you can enjoy public art, sculpture, free activities, and more! Don’t forget to check out the iconic Cloud Gate while you’re there. If you’re a nature lover, you’ll really enjoy the Garfield Park Conservatory, where you can explore several rooms full of exotic plants, art, and even an indoor lake. And don’t forget about Chicago’s amazing selection of world-class museums. The Art Institute of Chicago, Field Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of Science and Industry are just the tip of the iceberg!
