Chicago Travel Guide

A dramatic skyline, a vibrant arts scene, tremendous ethnic diversity, great business opportunities -- Chicago has all this and more. One of the great cities of America, Chicago is an ode to modern architecture with its spectacular buildings. It is also rooted in the country's past, serving as the link between the civilized East Coast and the Wild West frontier. Chicago also has plenty to offer in terms of sporting action -- the Chicago Bulls basketball team, Chicago Cubs baseball team and the Chicago Bears football team allow for some great spectator sports. This city is a true mélange of multi ethnic communities ranging from the Chinese to Greeks, Polish to Italians, Jews to Germans, Indians to the Irish – all of whom are here seeking the American Dream!

Come and explore this pulsating city with its endless numbers of bars and nightclubs, and get high on this cultural cocktail.

Chicago is not as happening as New York, nor as political as Washington, but it is unmatched in many spheres – it the largest, highest, biggest and fattest city!

- Highest – Sears Tower at 110 floors is the highest building this side of the Atlantic

- Largest – the Shedd aquarium is the largest indoor aquarium in America, the Art Institute boasts the largest collection of Impressionist paintings outside of France, the Chicago Cultural Center has the largest Tiffany stained glass dome in the world - First - The Adler Planetarium was the first of its kind this side of the Suez and the deep dish piazza was invented here.

Oh, and did you know that Chicago has the only river that flows backwards? The flow was reversed by engineers about a hundred years ago for sanitary purposes.
