GUIDE

One of America’s largest cities, Chicago prides itself on the diversity of its 77 unique neighborhoods, its rich traditions, and the vast array of extraordinary opportunities available to locals and visitors alike.

When you think of Chicago, there are many things which may come to mind, The Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Bears, or Bulls, perhaps Lake Michigan, the skyline filled with record-setting skyscrapers, its place as the center of America’s rail network, or even a story about Mrs. O’Leary’s cow. Each of these is undoubtedly part of Windy City’s story, but so are nearly a countless number of other genuinely astonishing people, places, and experiences. Norman Mailer wrote, “Chicago is the great American city,” we could not agree more.

With such a vast diversity of tastes, sights, sounds, and places to explore, your Chicago experiences will be remarkably your own. So enjoy our contributors’ experiences and recommendations, peruse through the Official Visitors Guide, and then set your sights on a Chicago vacation unlike any other.
