Why go to Chicago

High-rise and high energy, Chicago is big, bold and boisterous – and proudly so. With a striking lakeside setting, a packed sports calendar and a world-class cultural scene – think the blues and deep-dish pizza – a holiday in the Windy City has something for everyone.

Rebuilt extensively after the Great Fire of 1871, Chicago became the home of the first skyscraper – and architects haven’t looked down since. It has four of the tallest buildings in the USA. But it’s not all boring blocks – you’ll also find a mid-century Frank Lloyd Wright house and Frank Gehry’s signature swooping lines at the Pritzker Pavilion.

The city’s museums, meanwhile, are must-visit attractions rather than places to while away a rainy day. See the world’s largest dinosaur at the Field Museum of Natural History, journey to the stars at the Adler Planetarium and ‘experience a tornado’ at the Museum of Science and Industry.
