Illinois Travel Guide


Chicago boasts more than a handful of architectural achievements, from the towering Sears Tower to the Tribune Tower, whose base includes stones from famous buildings throughout the world. The city is a growing cultural haven; the Art Institute of Chicago houses a world-class collection, from Impressionist masters to more contemporary works in photography and ethnic art. And from the Art Institute, many of the city's major cultural and tourist attractions are within walking distance, including the Field Museum, the Shedd Aquarium, and the Hancock Tower.

And what would Chicago be without the blues? This classic American musical innovation floated up the Mississippi River, where it was perfected and is still performed throughout the city; the original House of Blues is located on Dearborn Street and hosts the masters of this music.

Nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago can be whatever you want it to be - a sports fan's paradise, a music lover's Mecca, a shopper's delight, a culture-seeker's dream. Just don't for a second call it boring.

For lovers of good food Chicago provides a diverse selection of outstanding restaurants. Noted for its great steaks, Chicago has evolved into a trend-setting restaurant city, where you can discover a wealth of cuisines from around the world, created by some of the nations top chefs.
