Chicago is located in Illinois on the shores of Lake Michigan in the North of United States. The city was one of the industrial engines of the United States in the 19th century.

Today, Chicago is an attractive home full of beautiful skyscrapers and provides an impressive skyline from the lake. To get an overview of the city, take a trip to the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) and enjoy the view at over 400 meters altitude. For fun and pleasure, Navy Pier is the best place to visit - not only for the Ferris wheel, restaurants and exhibitions but also Shakespeare Theater, which is good and worth to visit. Also, the city has a live theatre and music, which not only reminds of the "good old times" of the 20th century but also sets new impulses.

Like most cities on the American continent, Chicago is very big. If it is your first visit to Chicago, it is best to opt for centrally located accommodation. International hotels have been established in Chicago, but you can also stay in small apartments or hostels. Chicago is popular thanks to the Indian Summer, as it is a great time to organize trips to Canada and along the Great Lakes.
