The third-most populous city in the U.S., Chicago is home to a diverse population. Its many neighborhoods and community areas boast an array of cultural flavors, tourist attractions, and historic architecture. In the Chicago Loop and the surrounding Gold Coast and Magnificent Mile, you’ll find the city’s biggest tourist attractions. Get a photo of your reflection under “Cloud Gate” in Millennium Park or ride the ferris wheel on Navy Pier.
Of course, there is much to see and enjoy outside of these highly trafficked locations. Visit Boystown, America’s first-recognized LBGTQ+ district or catch a show in Lakeview’s Belmont Theater District. In warmer months, don’t miss a trip to the shore, with neighborhoods like Edgewater, Lincoln Park, and Hyde Park enjoying miles of sandy beaches.
It doesn’t stop within city limits, neighboring towns including Oak Park, Edgewater, and Rosemont offer plenty in the way of shopping, museums, and live entertainment without the hustle and bustle of the city. Whatever you’re craving, the Greater Chicago area has something in store for you.
