Is Chicago your kind of town? Jazz and blues bars, towering skyscrapers, the famous silver ‘bean’ and one HUGE lake – Chicago has a vibrant energy reflecting its diverse cultures. By day the shopping is superb and at night the music scene comes alive. Not to mention the architecture that Chicago is famous for, which has a lot to do with the rebuilding of the city after the great fire of 1871. In contrast to the towering skyscrapers are the Art Deco gems and the parklands on the banks of Lake Michigan where you can join the locals on the water or take a stroll in the park.
