If you want something different than New York for a city trip, Chicago is a very cool choice. In this Chicago Travel Guide you will find my favorite addresses and fun things to do. A first tip: go in the summer, because it gets very cold in winter! It is a very large city and not every neighborhood has an equally good reputation so plan your visit in advance and make a selection of sights and hotspots that you do not want to miss.
Here are a few tips from the Chicago Travel Guide! Visit the Art Institute of Chicago, go on an architecture river cruise, rent bicycles and cycle along Lake Michigan’s boardwalk, visit Millennium Park or enjoy the beach in the summer. From Willis Tower you have a great view over the city and did you know that Chicago also has a walking park in an old metro line just like in New York? Definitely go for a walk on the 606! My favorite neighborhood to eat and drink in Chicago are West Loop and Wicker Park. Have fun with the tips from this Chicago City Guide.
