Chicago Attractions

Whether during the blustery winter or humid summer, every day offers something exciting to explore in Chicago. There is history, world-renowned architecture, top-notch theater, and even plenty of outdoor adventures during the warmer months. Start your visit taking in downtown (the Loop), with the must-see museums and famous landmark buildings, and then venture to the northern neighborhoods to shop local boutiques and catch a Cubs game. Leave enough time to head south of the Loop to visit more unique art museums and up-and-coming neighborhoods. The only problem will be seeing all this mega metropolis holds in just one visit.
