Where to stay in Chicago

About Chicago

Chicago is a vibrant city famous for its budding jazz scene, 1920s gangsters and the deep pizza. The “windy city” also has world-class museums, expansive parks and an exceptional skyline that reflects into the glistening waters of Lake Michigan.

Things to do

The Art Institute of Chicago is home to both Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art and showcases over 300,000 pieces from across the globe. Explore the works of Van Gogh, Monet and Renoir as you stroll amongst the exhibits or browse through the array of historic books and jewelry on display.

In downtown Chicago sits Millennium Park, a vast nine-hectare green space home to a theatre and ice rink. Many of the city’s festivals are held in the grounds of the park. Make sure you visit the “Crown Fountain” and the “Cloud Gate”, a famous mirrored bean-shaped sculpture.

For family-friendly entertainment, head down to the Navy Pier that extends out to Lake Michigan. Ride the Ferris wheel, jump aboard the carousel or play a round of mini golf before heading to the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre for an evening of live entertainment.

Are you a shopaholic? The Magnificent Mile is considered a shopper’s paradise, so give your credit cards a workout in the designer stores and luxury boutiques. After a hard day of shopping, head to Pequod’s Pizza to dine on some of the city’s best deep-dish pizza.

Getting around

O’Hare International Airport is under an hour’s drive west of Chicago, while Midway Airport is only 30 minutes away. Downtown Chicago can be explored on foot or you can make use of the CTA trains and buses. There are also shuttle buses, taxis and water taxis available.
