Whether you choose popular attractions such as Millennium Park, the Chicago Lakefront Trail, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum, Navy Pier, the Shedd Aquarium, the Lincoln Park Zoo, boating or swimming in Lake Michigan, a Cubs game at Wrigley Field, the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, shopping on the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Avenue), a ride on the world famous “L” trains, a concert at the Chicago Theatre, the sky deck at Willis Tower (Sears Tower), a tour of the Chicago Botanic Gardens or a summertime jaunt to the Chicago Blues Fest or Taste of Chicago, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the Windy City!
From the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 to the rise of the city’s iconic skyscrapers, Chicago’s history is forever woven into its streets and buildings. Founded in 1837, the “City of Big Shoulders” has a rich and fascinating history that has not only shaped the city’s culture and architecture, but also has been influential across the world.
One of the city’s most famous landmarks is the Willis Tower, formally known as the Sears Tower. This 110-story skyscraper held the title of the world’s tallest building for nearly 25 years. It offers stunning city views from its famous observation deck and has been in numerous movies, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Dark Knight, Divergent, and many others.
