Chicago is packed to the brim with entertainment options. If you’re a fan of shopping, peruse the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, and State Street shopping areas to get a few upscale gifts for friends back home. You can also grab a bite to eat at one of the city’s highly-ranked restaurants, or even take a walking tour of the city’s architecture. Though the city is ranked the sixth most walkable in the United States, you can rest your tired feet by taking a ride on the famous L train that loops through the city above the streets.
Due to the tragic Great Chicago Fire, a huge building boom took place in the late 19th and early 20th century, creating one of the densest and tallest skylines in the world. There are many notable structures that combine innovation and experimentation, including the Aqua building, 35 East Wacker, the Chicago Board of Trade Building, the Chicago Cultural Center, and the Chicago Water Tower. It’s also home to some of the world’s tallest buildings, including the Willis Tower and the Trump International Hotel and Tower. Many Chicago tours can lead you through the streets while explaining the history and significance of these buildings.
One of the highlights of Chicago is Grant Park, which sits comfortably on the eastern side of Lake Michigan and offers spectacular views. Within this park is the famous Millennium Park, which is a 24.5-acre area that was created to celebrate the coming of the second millennium. In the park, you can gaze at the reflective Cloud Gate or admire the picturesque Crown Fountain.
For sports fans, stopping at Wrigley Field is a must. From there, you can spend the rest of your day watching animals at the Lincoln Park Zoo, learning new knowledge at the Museum of Science and Industry, or catching a performance by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The best way to see all of these sights is to choose one of our Chicago vacation packages, which will keep you organized and help you find a great Chicago hotel to stay in.
