Design your ideal getaway to Chicago, Illinois
Let Chicago exhilarate you. Prepare to delight in the unexpected, marvel at the cultural attractions, and lose yourself in Chicago’s mosaic of neighborhoods, each a vibrant cultural enclave. You can even dip your toes in the bluest water you’ll find outside of the Caribbean. A single getaway to this thriving metropolis on Lake Michigan’s shore will show you why Frank Sinatra crooned that Chicago is “one town that won't let you down.”
See why Chicagoans hold an almost fanatical belief that it’s better than all other cities. Plenty of visitors have made that same discovery at rooftop bars offering unparalleled views of the city. Sipping cocktails from on high, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the skyline that inspired Batman’s Gotham City. Foodies will find that the dining scene in Chicago is pretty much an art form of its own. From deep dish pizza rivalries to fine dining, you’ll have your choice of outstanding fare. Are you a serious shopper? Prepare to be dazzled by the Magnificent Mile’s upscale boutiques set alongside some of the city’s most amazing architecture. From here you can enjoy outstanding views of the Chicago River. And don't miss the fun and attractions at Navy Pier, home of the iconic Centennial Wheel.
