Travel Guide to Chicago

Chicago is the third largest city in the USA, and is without a doubt one of the most exciting. With a live music scene that has spawned more chart-toppers than Liverpool, the tallest building in the country, and a water front skyline that is nothing short of spectacular, it is easy to see why so many people visit. Shopping in Chicago is first rate – especially on the Loop and the Miracle Mile, and close to the city centre, the banks of Lake Michigan host a number of resort towns where you can unwind away from the bustle of the city itself.
