10 Best places to visit in Chicago




Chicago, Illinois, is known as the Windy City. The name may come from the breezes off Lake Michigan or the braggadocios population, no one knows for sure. But its rapid growth from a humble trading post to a major commercial center alone is enough to crow about. Chicago’s growth into a bustling metropolis coincided with U.S. westward expansion. Situated on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, it became a hub of commerce in the American West. The Illinois Waterway, completed in 1848, followed quickly by the railroad solidified Chicago’s place in the American economy by connecting Lake Michigan with the Mississippi River. Even today, half of all U.S. freight passes through Chicago’s rail yards. O’Hare and Midway International Airports make it the country’s busiest aviation center. Chicagoans can’t resist messing around with their river. On St. Patrick’s Day, the Plumbers Union dyes it a bright shade of Irish green, and every summer the Special Olympics holds a fundraiser where tens of thousands of rubber ducks race down the waterway. Tall-building construction was invented in Chicago and the city is known as the “Home of the Skyscraper.” It currently has four of the country’s ten tallest buildings. It’s no surprise that Chicago is one of the biggest tourist destinations: They have miles of beaches, world-class museums, and some of the friendliest city-dwellers out there. But in such a gigantic city, it can be tough for visitors to know which of the myriad things to do in Chicago are really worth tackling, some of them are mentioned below:
