Welcome to Chicago!


The Center of it All

Affixed by stunning Lake Michigan and decorated with inspiring architecture, Chicago is more than just a big city. Besides its striking downtown area, which includes some of the tallest buildings in the world, Chicago has a distinctive shoreline, hundreds of vibrant parks and 77 unique neighborhoods. It's this truly distinctive mix of incredible attractions and cultural allure that make Chicago one of the friendliest, most livable cities in America.

Chicago's developed a reputation as a must-visit destination for diners. In fact, Chicago is one of only three cities in the country to have its culinary chops rated by the prestigious Michelin Guide. With incredible shopping on The Magnificent Mile, world premiere performances in its famed Theater District and one of the country's most active nightlife scenes, this city is always buzzing. Chicago also vaunts more than 60 museums, five regional Tony Award-winning theaters and, no matter the season, there's always a professional sports team to cheer to victory.

Situated squarely in the center of the country and equipped with two major, international airports, getting to Chicago is easy. Once you arrive, you'll be able to choose from more than 38,000 hotel rooms in the downtown area alone. From sleek downtown properties to luxury boutiques, you will discover outstanding accommodations for every style and budget.

Millennium Park, deep dish pizza and Wrigley Field are all compelling enough reasons to visit Chicago, but the city's most endearing quality is its people. Chicago's neighborhoods represent more than 100 countries and it's through this diversity and profound city culture that we are able to develop the country's best restaurants, theaters and museums.
