Not only is the city built along the lake, it’s also built around the Chicago River. You might have heard it is dyed green for St. Patrick’s Day, but summer is best for enjoying it by tour boat, water taxi or just by strolling its river walk.
The city is well known for its outstanding restaurants. Two of them, Alinea and Grace, have earned three stars from the prestigious Michelin Guide and three other restaurants have two stars. And though star-less, local favorites — Italian beef sandwiches and deep dish pizza — have been creating their own kind of fame for decades.
With incredible shopping on the Magnificent Mile, its famed Theater District and one of the country’s most active nightlife scenes, this city is always buzzing. Chicago also boasts more than 40 museums and five regional Tony Award-winning theaters.
