When it comes to architecture, Chicago is on top of the world. Explore the history behind some of Chicago’s most significant buildings, museums, theatres, bridges and parks. Get a birds-eye-view at the top of the 360 Chicago Observation Deck or see the world’s architectural greats through the renowned Chicago Architectural River Cruise.


Attractions that surprise and delight

There are a variety of attractions to enjoy for all ages. Wander the city’s extensive list of museums or head to Navy Pier for family-fun with lake cruises, beaches and walkable paths. Of course, no trip to Chicago is complete without getting a selfie at Cloud Gate (aka The Bean).


Music to your ears

With over 200 stages including five Tony award-winning theatre companies and Broadway In Chicago premieres, Chicago is the birthplace of gospel, blues and house music. Enjoy the long list of entertainment options this city has to offer.


Eat your way through Chicago

Chicago is a melting pot of cultures and flavours, celebrated throughout the year with festivals and special events across all neighbourhoods. Whether you choose to dig in for some deep dish or try something new, the city is full of star chefs, mixologists and brewers that consistently push the boundaries of innovation.


Get outside and explore

With miles of lakeshore, beaches and bike paths to be explored, Chicago is the perfect city to explore on two feet or two wheels. Walk along the Chicago Riverwalk and stop in for a quick bite at one of the fabulous restaurants. If you prefer more action, head to Maggie Daley Park and Grant Park where rollerbladers, skaters and climbers can have their day. Or, laze on down the Chicago River by kayak or sail on Lake Michigan.


Shop ’til you drop

Shop at one of the over 450 stores along Magnificent Mile, from high street favourites to upscale couture. Visit State Street, anchored by the historic Macy’s department store or stroll along Oak Street for luxury finds.


Now that you’ve enjoyed a taste of what Chicago has to offer, visit and start planning your trip.
