    Exciting travel opportunities are not just limited to the East and West Coast of the United States. The city of Chicago is one of the most bustling and exciting areas of the Midwest, and attracts the attention of tens of millions of visitors and tourists every year.

    The popular waterfront of the city is one of the most beautiful features of Chicago’s cityscape, and has wonderful sights such as the Navy Pier’s countless restaurants and retail shops. One of the most famous attractions of Chicago’s waterfront is the giant Ferris Wheel, which is over 150 ft. tall and is sure to thrill anyone who takes a ride. The view from the top of the Ferris Wheel is simply spectacular! For those who love to try new foods as they travel, Chicago will not disappoint. Chicago’s own style of pizza, the deep dish, is a particularly popular treat for visitors and rivals New York’s own world-renown pizza pies.

  • If you are looking for a place to exercise after enjoying one of Chicago’s famous hot dogs, Chicago’s well-loved Park District is a great place to get fresh air and walk with friends. Lincoln Park is one of the most visited parks within the United States, with plenty of greenery and space for relaxation and play.

    Who ever said that a vacation cannot be educational, as well as fun? Students and travelers with a passion for discovery will flock to Chicago’s many famous museums, such as Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, and the Field Museum of Natural History. Chicago’s historic roots within Theatre, Music, and the Performance Arts offer great monumental sights and buildings such as Chicago Symphony Orchestra and The Chicago Theatre.
