From architecture to amazing museums and zoos to sport venues and casinos, Chicago has it all. Shoppers and foodies will also delight in the Windy City. Below is some of the must-see points of interest and attractions you'll want to include on your itinerary.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — Staying on top of Chicago’s entertainment scene can be a challenge for even the most highly-caffeinated multi-tasker. Laugh your head off at the famed Second City Theater. Explore one of the city’s many jazz clubs or take in a concert at big venues such as the Chicago Theatre or the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. Head outside the city for gambling, to casinos in nearby Joliet, Aurora and Des Plaines. If its roller coaster you crave, try Six Flags Great America in nearby Gurnee, which offers a thrill a minute. US Coachways is the official charter bus service for the Six Flags theme parks nationwide.
- Arts & Cultural — When blowing through the Windy City, take time to visits its myriad of museums and cultural venues. Even Ferris Beuler hit up the Art Institute of Chicago on his day off. The Museum of Contemporary Art houses one of the largest collections of modern art in the nation while the DuSable Museum of African American History is one of the oldest African-American–focused museums in the country. If its performing arts you want, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs at the grand Symphony Center on Michigan Avenue or take in the Joffrey Ballet at the Auditorium Theater at Roosevelt University. You won't want to miss seeing a play at the famed Steppenwolf Theatre, host to a drama group that has launched the careers of many acclaimed actors.
- Restaurants & Shopping — The Chicago culinary scene is a star-studded affair boasting celebrity chefs and endless accolades. With more than 5,500 restaurants lining the city’s streets, patrons have their choice of anything from deep-dish pizza and exotic ethnic cuisine to the finest of fine dining. The Navy Pier is a popular site for visitors with its restaurants and shops. Window shop along the stretch of Michigan Avenue known as the Magnificent Mile. If its bargains you crave, a visit to the Fashion Outlet of Chicago is a must.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — Chicago has been called "Best Sports City" in the United States for a reason: Where else can you find two Major League baseball teams playing ball: the Chicago Cubs at historic Wrigley Field along with the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field? Then there's the NFL champion Chicago Bears at Soldier Field plus the Chicago Bulls, winner of six NBA championships. Add to that the NHL Chicago Blackhawks, winner of the 2013 Stanley Cup (and four others, previously). For golfers, there are nearly a dozen highly ranked golf courses within a short distance of Chicago including Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont and the Oak Brook Hills.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — Chicago is a big draw for both architecture lovers and history buffs. At the turn of the century, architect Frank Lloyd Wright lived and worked in a Chicago suburb, designing many of his finest works here such as the Frederick C. Robie House and Unity Temple. Also not to be missed, the Chicago Board of Trade Building, the Chicago Cultural Center with its 38-foot Tiffany Favrile glass dome as well as the John J. Glessner House on “millionaires’ row and the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), the tallest building in the world until 1973.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — Home to 570 parks covering more than 8,000 acres that includes 31 beaches, 50 nature areas and two word-class conservatories, Chicago has a long history of parkland creation and protection, adopting the motto "City in a Garden" back in the 1830s. Notable among these are Washington Park, one of the largest city parks covering nearly 400 acres and designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., and Grant Park, one of the city's first parks proudly referred to as Chicago's front yard that includes a museum campus. Walk the Chicago Riverwalk in downtown, from Lake Shore Drive to Franklin Street, and view the city in a whole new way.
- Zoos & Aquariums — The Lincoln Park Zoo is one of the few free zoos in the United States and features more than 1,000 animals, including many exotics, on its 35-acre campus. There's also the Brookfield Zoo in nearby Brookfield, housing about 450 species of animals spread out over 216 acres. One of the most famous attractions for families is the free Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, where you can watch sharks swim menacingly about in its "Wild Reef" exhibit.
- Other Points of Interest — The Museum Campus is located in lakefront park surrounding three of the city’s most noted museums, all dedicated to the natural sciences -- the Field Museum of Natural History and The Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum as well as the Shed Aquarium. Over on Lake Shore Drive, the Museum of Science and Industry remains a perennial favorite with a restored U-505 German submarine, a simulated coal mine and a glass-covered hatchery of chicks.
