Welcome to the Windy City! Chicago is the major Midwest hub — and the third largest city in the country — with 2.9 million people in the city proper and about 9 million more in the metro area. It’s a melting pot, packed with different cultures bringing their traditions like delicious food from every corner of the globe and great global-influenced shopping.
We’re also known worldwide for our favorite quirks: Chicago-style hot dogs, Chicago stuffed pizza, and weather that can span all four seasons in the space of an hour. (And no, the wind isn’t the reason Chicago is called the Windy City — it’s actually a thinly veiled reference to our crooked politicians blowing hot air when they speak.) It’s a mecca rising up on the shore of Lake Michigan, one you have to see to believe.
If you’re visiting Chicago, there are some things you absolutely can’t miss — whether it’s strolling through a great city park, standing on glass far above the city, catching a game, or grabbing dinner and a show. These are some of the best spots to see in the city from our travelstoke app.
