Chicago City Guide

Overview

With an abundance of culture, amazing food and year-round sporting events, Chicago is an easy pick for a family vacation.

The Windy City is the third most populous city in the U.S., serving as a bustling international hub for commerce, art and technology. Located on the shores of freshwater Lake Michigan, Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837. Known for its bold architecture (as seen at Willis Tower), public art installations (such as Millennium Park) and entertainment (Navy Pier), there’s something for every froggy in Chicago.

  • Popular sports stops, including the Chicago Cubs at the iconic Wrigley Field, the White Sox, the Bears (football), the Bulls (basketball) and the Blackhawks (hockey)
  • Delicious eats (deep-dish pizza, anyone?)
  • Easy to navigate using public transportation
