Landmarks in Chicago

Travelers cannot visit Chicago without visiting some of its great landmarks. Baseball fans will love to ride the el with the local Cubs fans to Wrigley Field, and history buffs will want to check out The St. James Cathedral, the oldest Episcopal Church in the city and one of the few surviving buildings left over from the Great Chicago Fire. "Cloud Gate," or as many locals call "The Bean" for its legume-like shape, draws viewers year round. Chicago's landmarks give unique images to the city, and will give you great pictures to take home.
