A very cool city with trendy restaurants, museums, music and sports

Chicago will endeavour to surprise you – think beaches and you don’t immediately think of Chicago, yet this city has over 15 miles of beach within its reach. And while Memphis may be the home of blues, Chicago certainly puts in a grand effort with some amazing blues clubs dotted throughout the city. This year-round destination has an experience for everyone.

There’s a cultural draw to Chicago that keeps people coming back time and time again. It doesn’t matter what you’re interested in, from music and sport to art and food, this city does it all so well. Take food-lovers, for example, who will be spoiled for choice when it comes to fine dining, ethnic cuisines and local classics – don’t leave without trying a deep-dish pizza or exploring some of the city’s top restaurants.

Live performances, whether on a small scale in bars or massive festivals downtown, are regularly occurring somewhere within the city – Lollapalooza is one of the highlights for many visitors. And sport is a true passion for the locals – baseball, hockey, basketball, football…you name it, they play it. Of course, if you’re exploring, there are numerous ways to do this – why not take a self-drive tour of the city or visit as part of a multi-centre holiday with another destination of your choosing? Chicago moulds to fit whatever type of getaway you imagine, creating the type of holiday you reminisce about for years to come.
