On Wednesday, March 4, Chicago celebrated its 178th birthday (it doesn't look a day over 175, does it?). To spread a little birthday cheer, we asked our social media followers for some of their favorite Chicago memories and tell us why they love the city so much.
We got some fantastic responses and we're happy to share them with you. We think it'll give you just an idea of how great Chicago really is and why you should definitely visit any chance you get.
