    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

    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

    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."

    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.

    Sales tax on clothing higher than NYC. PARKING atrociously expensive. Still my kind of town.

    This city is the worst. For being a foodie city, all of it is bland and subpar. The residents are oblivious, the cities politics are backwards, racist, and classist. Casual racism is the norm 24/7.
