Chicago's neighborhoods thrive on the western shore of Lake Michigan, and the wide variety of ethnic identities and cultural enclaves is a point of pride for the Windy City, a place that battled from its swampy beginnings, beef and pork slaughterhouses and a massive fire to become a global powerhouse of commerce and bastion of jazz and the blues.

Chicago is the capital of the Midwest, home to the America's commodities markets, spectacular skyscrapers, the Magnificent Mile of shopping on Michigan Avenue, and friendly Midwestern hospitality with a collection of Chicago hotels rivaling any city.  Its art scene is thriving and fashion scene growing.  Michael Jordan is the individual icon of Chicago sports, but its cursed Cubs own (and break) its hearts.

Start anywhere in Chicagoland: Millenium Park, Chinatown on the South Side, Wicker Park or Lincoln Park west of the Loop. Take the famous 'el' trains to explore further up to Evanston, home of Northwestern University, on the banks of Lake Michigan and several other charming towns.
