VISIT CHICAGO

Chicago has unparalleled sophistication, class, and style. Not to mention, breathtaking views. Our prime location and two international airports make Chicago unmatched when it comes to accessibility. And once you're here, you'll find unparalleled meeting space and accommodations, world-renowned museums, nightlife and music for every style, theater that's home to world-premiere shows, and a dining scene that has so many accolades it's in a ranking of its own.

Come experience Chicago, and find out why it's truly in a class by itself.

THE CENTER OF IT ALL 

Getting to Chicago is easy. With 2,815 daily nonstop flights, you can get to Chicago from nearly anywhere in the world. Once you're here, expansive public transportation and thousands of taxis make it a cinch to get around.

NO BETTER PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD DOWN

There are more than 108,000 hotel rooms to choose from in the Chicagoland area. And more than 38,000 are right downtown in the center of everything. From boutique to classic to everything in between, you'll find world-class accommodations that meet your style.

NATURAL BEAUTY AMONG MANMADE WONDERS

Just imagine. Twenty-six miles of uninterrupted lakefront nestled against undoubtedly one of the most magnificent skylines. And that's not all we've got. The lakefront includes 16 miles of sandy beaches and an 18-mile stretch of bike path. Bikers, boaters, sunbathers and volleyball players abound. Turn to Chicago's green space and you'll find even more activity. There are hundreds of beautifully maintained parks, such as Millennium and Grant Parks downtown and Lincoln Park just to the north. And Museum Campus alone has 57 immaculate acres.

CITY OF BROAD HORIZONS

With 60 museums that engage and enlighten, Chicago's horizons may be even broader than its shoulders. The world-renowned Art Institute of Chicago has a vast collection, including the most Impressionist works outside the Louvre. And the Museum of Contemporary Art puts the thought-provoking art of today front and center.

But art museums are just a fraction of what Chicago has to offer. Located on the picturesque Museum Campus, The Field Museum is a treasure trove of natural history and home to the most complete T. rex skeleton ever discovered. Right nearby, you'll find 32,500 animals at the Shedd Aquarium and countless stars at Adler Planetarium, America's first. For science buffs, the Museum of Science & Industry is hard to top. Impossible perhaps. It's the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere. So whatever your interest, Chicago has a museum or two to enhance it.

SIGHTS TRULY WORTH SEEING

Adults and children alike are wowed by Chicago's awesome attractions. Here, you can walk out onto the water of Lake Michigan with a visit to Navy Pier and its many rides, restaurants, theaters and shops. Visit The Ledge at Skydeck Chicago in the Willis Tower, and you can practically walk on air more than 1,000 feet in the sky. 360 CHICAGO offers its own variety of breathtaking views of the city and lake. And perhaps Chicago's most out-of-this-world experience is right back at ground level in the form of Millennium Park. The Park's Cloud Gate sculpture ("The Bean"), Pritzker Pavilion, Crown Fountain and other fascinating features are like nothing you've ever seen. Of course, the same could be said for the city as a whole.

DINING THAT GOES MUCH DEEPER THAN PIZZA

Six Chicago restaurants earned the prestigious Five Diamond Award from the AAA for 2015, more than any other North American city. We're home to 24 Michelin star restaurants and 40+ James Beard Award medalists. Plus, Chicago's diverse neighborhoods serve up all kinds of cuisines. Let your taste buds be your guide. And let's not forget our staples. Dive in to some cheesy goodness at one of our famed deep-dish pizza joints or grab yourself a Chicago-style hot dog. Whatever you decide to bring with you, be sure an appetite is first on the list.
