Chicago: "Pulse of America"
Economy Alert! Skip rising gas prices in this public transportation-friendly city.
Situated on the banks of Lake Michigan, this Midwestern metropolis combines global high-style with a friendly, down-home soul. Along with its superb medical facilities, visitors to Chicago relish the city’s 29-mile long lakefront park, fabulous shopping districts, multicultural neighborhoods and world-class arts and entertainment. Since the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that burned over one third of the city to the ground, the city has only continued to persevere and grow into the booming metropolis that it is today. With its impressive skyline featuring buildings designed by some of architecture’s most noteworthy to its buzzing downtown culture scene; Chicago is a city that truly has it all.
In addition to its thriving business sector, the most populous city in the Midwestern United States is also well known for its sports teams, upscale shopping, distinctive cuisine and lively music scene. A visit to Chicago isn’t complete without making a trip to the world-renowned Wrigley Field and enjoying an authentic “Chicago-style” hot dog.
Chicago is many things at once—a blue-collar town that's full of high culture and gracious living; a town of historical importance that's focused on the future; a classic Midwestern city of international importance. Ultimately, Chicago's refusal to conform to any single style is what truly defines this city.
