    Best season to visit is during the Summer, but don't fret, Winter offers a beautiful heartwarming view of the city decorated in holiday lights & FREE ice skating in various city parks. ENJOY OUR CITY

    Chicago is all about architecture so it’s strongly suggested to do the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust tours and the Chicago architecture foundation walking tours.

    The third largest city in the U.S. & 2nd largest skyline. The crown of the Midwest & a culturally significant American metropolis, enjoy the countless sights, sounds, & tastes of this "toddlin' town."

    Best time to visit: April - May. Summer = tourists. Unless you want to elbow people out of the way to get a photo of “the Bean.” we suggest Spring. Airfare/ hotels are affordable and you won’t freeze. Read more

    Don't leave town without trying a deep dish pizza, an italian beef sandwich, or some garrett's popcorn. If your really cool you'll go to a CUBS game while your in town!!!
