Chicago is known as the “Windy City”, and is a massive piece of American culture. The bustling city is home to deep dish pizza, the Chicago hot dog style, and their popular Italian influenced beef sandwiches. It is also home to a huge performing arts following, sculpted artwork scattered about the city, and many places to watch live comedy shows. The pier makes for fun by the water, which only a few cities have and is home to citizens of all nationalities! The melting pot city is a wonderful place to visit, but be sure to pack accordingly as their winter season can be rather chilly.
The historic museum is a place to learn, snap photos, and soak up some art. You can spend time in the library, seeing exhibits, and flipping through thousands of photographs they house. It additionally has a large costume collection, and several cool things for kids to enjoy such as the “Sensing Chicago” where they can hang out with a big Chicago dog.
