    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

    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!!!

    Amazing city! Yet if you need to move you should call a moving company because rules and regulations are very strict and only a pro movers can do the job professorially!

    Martin Cooper was born in Chicago in 1928 – he’s the inventor of the handheld mobile phone – so you can thank him and his So Right invention for making this check in possible.
