Chicago, Illinois is the 3rd most populous city in the United States, with almost 3 million residents. It is a cultural melting-pot, with populations from all around the world.
Sat upon the Chicago river, the city owes the waterway its’ success. Although not particularly long, the Chicago river became important in providing a link between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi Valley waterways, and eventually the Gulf of Mexico.
The best way to explore the city is by grabbing an AirBnB out in one of the northern neighborhoods like Lincoln Square, and ride the Metro into the city, or stay at one of the many hotels near Millennium park.
There are so many sights, you’ll need a few days to really explore, with many museums and art galleries. If you get a chance, head-out to ‘The Art of Pizza’ for the best Chicago style pizza I’ve had in the city!
