Travel Tips & Advice for Chicago

Chicago Activities


To experience the real Chicago, get to the shores of its famous lake. The North Avenue Beach area is popular with a chic local crowd and offers outstanding views of the cityscape beyond. Lake Shore Drive has a more select feel and is flanked by lush green spaces; the Lakeside Trail is often busy with day-trippers, joggers and families having fun in the sun. The city's Navy Pier has recently been redeveloped into a thoroughly modern recreational space, with many fun attractions.

Chicago Food & Drink


Chicago is known across the globe for its deep-dish pizzas - baked in a deep round tin to get the dough tasting just right, and smothered in the toppings of your choice. You can test out examples in cafes, diners and pizza parlours all over Chicago, but there are also many fine dining establishments to be discovered. At Sixteen, a restaurant located appropriately on the 16th floor of the Trump International Tower, the high-end fare is French with an American twist.

Chicago Attractions


Chicago is an excellent city to explore on foot; it is small enough to walk around comfortably, but it also has excellent public transport links. There are many fascinating museums here, from the Art Institute of Chicago to the famous Field Museum, home to Sue, the largest Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton in the world. The area of town known as the Magnificent Mile is a magnet for people who love to shop - it's known across the US as a major retail destination.
