Chicago Travel Information

The first Chicago township was set up in 1781 at the strategically important point where the Chicago River enters Lake Michigan. Once the railways arrived, its geography determined that Chicago would become the Mid-West rail hub, and the size of the modern city of almost three million citizens – now the third largest in the US – continues to reflect its dominant regional influence.

Most travellers visit Chicago and its long sandy beaches during the warm Midwestern summer, but many find the spring and autumn pleasant too – with the added advantage that this is also a good time to catch major events and festivals. Though winter visits can often secure attractive prices, there is a real risk of snowfalls in the Windy City at that time.

Chicago is renowned for the quality of its distinguished urban architecture, much of which dates from the period of reconstruction following the Great Fire of 1871. Further innovative achievements, such as the building of the first skyscraper (1885), have added unique detail to the picturesque city skyline, best appreciated from vantage points such as Grant Park, the Sears Tower, or viewed from the Chicago River waterfront on an architectural cruise.

As music fans will be aware, Chicago has played a major role in the development of blues and jazz ever since the exodus of plantation workers from the rural south began in the 1920s. These living art forms can still be savoured in small clubs around the city, or in major venues such as Buddy Guy's Legends. Elsewhere, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra attract international acclaim, and top-drawer performance venues like the superb Steppenwolf Theatre support a full range of arts programmes. Culturally minded tourists will also discover the metropolis is home to world-class museums and galleries such as the Museum of Science and Industry and the Chicago Art Institute.

All shoppers will want to explore the delights of Chicago's Magnificent Mile and many similar venues, and an abundance of city eateries will cater for those in need of refreshment. Meanwhile, according to their preference, more serious diners can enjoy a broad choice of excellent haute cuisine, full ethnic menus, or down-home Southern and Mid-West favourites, in most areas of the city.

For those seeking fresh air and more active pursuits, Chicago visitors can always hire a bike or explore the network of walking trails in the vicinity of Lake Michigan, whilst American-Sports fans can arrange a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the home of legendary favourites such as the Blackhawks, or the White Sox.
