Chicago, the third-largest city in the U.S, is the melting pot of all things metropolitan and memorable! The Windy City is particularly popular owing to its vibrant art scene, myriad cultural attractions, outstanding shopping, and exciting architecture like the Sears Tower and museums. Last year, Chicago was just ranked the second most beautiful city globally by 27,000 Time Out Index survey voters from across the globe. You’d love to hit Chi-town for delectable delights like Chicago-style pizza, Maxwell Street Polish sausage, or foot-tapping jazz music.
