Flights to Chicago - Take a flight to The Great American City

 

About Chicago, Illinois

Sinatra said it best when he sang about Chicago “… And each time I roam, Chicago is calling me home, Chicago is why I just grin like a clown – It’s my kind of town…”

 

From Millennium Park (home to the famous Bean), Jazz music, Chicago-style (deep dish) pizza, Maxwell Street Polish Sausage, to July’s “Taste of Chicago” delicious food festival, the city of Chicago is irresistibly delightful. In the heart of the midwest, the Windy City boasts soaring skyscrapers, 100 colorful neighborhoods, 70 nature and bird sanctuaries, 18.5 miles of lakefront trail with 29 beaches and 600 parks and green spaces. Chicago's culinary scene makes the city strikingly impressive, comprising over 7000 restaurants, 7 AAA Diamond rated restaurants, 26 Michelin-starred restaurants, and 65 breweries. The outstanding art, culture, urban recreation, world-famous events and the “Magnificent Mile Lights” festival make the city overwhelmingly pleasurable. 

As one of the most populated cities in the United States, Chicago is full of glittering lights and joyous atmosphere. Located on the shores of freshwater Lake Michigan, this metropolitan city features world-class museums of arts & sciences, sandy beaches, huge parks, dining places, and luxury shops galore. 

Apart from the high-rise buildings and the lit-up streets, the city is also a paradise for the shopaholics. This city is a perfect destination for shoppers as every street is lined up with one-of-a-kind fashion boutiques, designer outlets, malls, and high-end brands, which offers premium & luxury goods. The 13-block stretch of “Michigan Avenue” and the “Magnificent Mile” features over 460 designer boutiques and multi-story malls.

 

San Diego and Miami have beautiful beaches while Denver and Salt Lake City is good for outdoor adventures due to fresh air, and Seattle and San Francisco are known for the fabulous food eateries but the city of New York has it all. 

 

Chicago Interesting Facts: 

Despite the fact that the city of Chicago is well-known for its incredible architecture, museums reflecting Midwestern history, very few are aware of what makes Chicagoland unique.

 

The following Chicago interesting facts may astound about how epic the Windy City truly is. 

  • The name Chicago comes from the Algonquin word “Chicagou” or “Shikaakwa,” which translates to “onion field” or “wild garlic.”
  • Planning a road trip? U.S. Route 66, also known as the Will Rogers Highway, starts in Chicago. This historic road begins at the corner of “S Michigan Ave” and goes through “E Adams Street” and further west and southwest upto all the way towards California.
  • The world’s most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton can be found in the Field Museum. Its name is Sue.
  • The Chicago River flows backwards. 
  • The term “Jazz” originated from Chicago in 1914. At present, there are more than 200 theaters and 225 live music venues in the city. 
  • Do you know where the idea of putting paint in a can with a spray tip came from? Chicago paint salesman Ed Seymour actually invented the spray paint machine, which is now used to create colorful works all around the city. 
  • The idea of High-rise construction started from Chicago, and the city is known as the “Home of the Skyscraper.” The Home Insurance Company is the world’s first skyscraper that was built in 1895 in Chicago. The country’s four of the ten tallest buildings are in Chicago itself. 
  • Chicago is a motherland of many inventions like roller skates, zippers, pinball, Crackerjacks, softball, and remote control.
  • Chicago— “Art on theMART” is the longest-running and largest permanent digital art projection in the world.
  • The City by the Lake is home to one of the world’s biggest outdoor food festivals “The Taste of Chicago.” For five days in July, visitors visiting from all over the world can experience not just the food but enjoy the music performances by local artists and celebrities, including Kenny Rogers and Carlos Santana. 

 

Best Time to Visit Chicago

Chicago - The City by the Lake, is popularly known for its beautiful summers and frigid winters. For most people, Chicago’s weather can be a determining factor for choosing the best time to visit this Windy City. The city is chilly – often bitterly cold – during the winter season from November to March restricting travelers to visit during winters. On the contrary, the best months to visit Chicago are April and June when the spring season is on after a chilling winter season. Another good time to visit Chicago is during the months of September and November when the fall season is at its peak, and the temperature is perfect for outdoor activities. However, in both seasons, travelers may run into a bit of cold at night, or hot sunny days during the day, or some rainy days. Those who can stand the heat can choose to visit during summers. 

 

Why is Chicago a perfect winter destination? 

Traveling during the off-season is nothing new for travelers, but it’s one of the best times to visit the beautiful city of Chicago. Besides indulging in its delicious deep-dish pizza and ice skating in “Millennium Park,” there are several reasons why Chicago is the perfect winter vacation destination for most tourists.

  • The airfares and hotel prices are much cheaper during this time since it’s not peak season. 
  • Tourist attractions are less crowded in the winter. 
  • Ice Skating in Millennium Park. 
  • The city is all lit up for Christmas. 
  • The beautiful snow-capped city skylines make for a breathtaking view. 

 

Only-in-Chicago Attractions: The most popular things to see in Chicago

Chicago has all the offerings one would expect from the great American city. Sightseeing options range from Chicago icons like Millennium Park's sculptures, fountains, gardens, and event spaces to awe-inspiring architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Frank Gehry, and Daniel Burnham. Get above it all on The Ledge, a glass platform on the Skydeck at Willis Tower, or the 360 Chicago Observation Deck on North Michigan Avenue. 

 

Take a stroll around the cityscapes along the Chicago Riverwalk, where visitors can enjoy meals, drinks, or head on to an architecture cruise on the Chicago River. Take the children to Lincoln Park Zoo, Wrigley Field and Navy Pier, the three iconic and family-friendly attractions, or rent bicycles and pedal along the 29-kilometer Lakefront Trail.

 

Grant Park and Buckingham Fountain

The city’s centerpiece much like New York's Central Park, Grant Park is a 319-acre public park that starts at the eastern edge of the Loop and stretches down to the northern fringes of the Near South Side. Often referred to as "Chicago's front yard," this park is home to Chicago's most iconic landmarks and city attractions, including the Museum Campus, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Adler Planetarium museum, and the Shedd Aquarium. Grand Park features baseball fields, tennis courts, flower gardens, and walking paths, etc. Grant Park is highly popular for its number of attractions and is a must-see spot for first-time visitors.  

 

At the heart of Grant Park is the Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain. As one of the largest in the world, this majestic fountain is the one of the Grant Park attractions that every traveler shouldn't miss. While in operation, the fountain feature boasts 133 jets that shoot water as high as 150 feet long into the air during 20-minute choreographed displays. Major displays take place every hour on the hour between 9 a.m. and 10:35 p.m. from early May to October, depending on the weather. At night, the Buckingham Fountain performance is complemented by lights and music.

 

Millennium Park

Millennium Park, initially began as a railroad and parking lot is now one of the most iconic landmarks and best tourist attractions in the city of Chicago. The Millennium Park is more than a tourist spot as it symbolizes the Chicago experience. Located in the Loop just north of the Art Institute of Chicago, the 24.5-acre campus of the Millennium Park consists of attractions such as the historic Chicago Cultural Center, renowned Art Institute of Chicago, and adventurous Maggie Daley Park, and more. A number of concerts and festivals are also held here. 

“Cloud Gate” or “The Bean,” and the Crown Fountain are the city’s most iconic sculptures attracting thousands of guests each year. Completed in July 2004, the Crown Fountain designed by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa is an interactive work of public art and video sculpture featured in Chicago's Millennium Park. Standing on the opposite ends of a shallow reflecting pool are the two 50-foot long fountain towers that face each other and which are covered in LED lights behind glass bricks. The Bean, a 110 ton bean shaped sculpture forged from stainless steel, was designed by an internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor. The sculpture mirroring the sky and reflecting the Chicago skyline, is partly made from liquid mercury. 

 

There are plenty of other attractions visitors can visit at Millennium Park. One can enjoy a music and dance show at the Harris Theater, stroll through the Lurie Garden or head to the Maggie Daley Park, which is a kid's fantasyland, or sign up for a Segway tour at the McDonald's Cycle Center. 

 

Lincoln Park Zoo

Located two miles north of downtown, the Lincoln Park Zoo is a world of wildlife in the shadow of skyscrapers. The zoo is home to hundreds of species, including big cats, polar bears, gorillas, penguins, reptiles, and monkeys. Visitors can view the zoo's furry (or scaly) friends in their natural habitats: Check out either chimpanzees or gorillas in the sprawling Regenstein Center for African Apes or head to the Antelope & Zebra Area to get up close and personal with Sichuan Takin. Visitors can also head to welcome the new arrivals such as De Brazza's monkey (an arboreal species notable for their distinctive white facial hair), Jamaican Iguana, Snowy Owl, an vulnerable lizard species— Henkel's Leaf-tailed Gecko, a West African Gaboon Viper snake (the world's largest viper), as well as the largest indigenous African rock python. Lincoln Park Zoo is free, open, and amazing every day of the year.

 

Shedd Aquarium

The world's largest indoor aquarium, Shedd Aquarium is a home to 32,500 types of fishes, amphibians, corals, reptiles, and invertebrates and other kinds of aquatic creatures. Interact closely with penguins, beluga whales, piranhas, white-sided dolphins, and sharks at the Shedd Aquarium.

 

Navy Pier

Sitting on the shores of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier offers plenty of family-friendly entertainment. The first thing to spot is the Navy Pier's iconic 200-foot-tall Ferris wheel. The vintage carousel and a swing-seat ride provides an ultimate thrilling experience. After taking a spin on the new Centennial Wheel, visitors can spend some time practicing putt at the 18-hole miniature golf course or spend a few hours exploring the “Chicago Children's Museum.” Visitors can catch a show at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, watch a movie in AMC Navy Pier IMAX Theater (features the largest movie screen in Illinois), or grab a drink at the Miller Lite Beer Garden.

Here’s a list of Chicago’s famous local dishes, specialties and original dishes: 

 

Deep-Dish Pizza from Uno Pizzeria & Grill

Let’s start with the most famous Chicago-style pizza after all the Windy City is the world’s most popular city for pizza. Order a Numero Uno deep-dish pizza from Uno Pizzeria & Grill (a mainstay since 1943), which is loaded with sausage, onions, mushrooms, pepperoni, peppers, and chunky tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella and romano. Want more deep-dish pizza ideas? Don’t miss the flaky, buttery crust at Lou Malnati’s, the over-the-top stuffed crust at Giordano’s, or the sauce-covered pies at Gino’s East. 

 

Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich at Al’s Italian Beef

Another Chicago classic is an Italian beef sandwich. On Taylor Street, the main drag of Chicago's "Little Italy" is Al's Beef, also known as Al's #1 Italian Beef. Try hands on the famous Italian beef sandwich at Al's — a sandwich stalwart since 1938. Al's Italian Beef is loaded with hot and sweet peppers and dipped in "gravy" for an unbelievably juicy, flavorful meal.

 

Chicken Pot Pie at The Walnut Room 

Visit The Walnut Room inside Macy’s on State Street — the first restaurant to ever open in a departmental store. Mrs. Hering’s Chicken Pot Pie is a chicken-loaded, pea- and carrot-sprinkled, flaky crust mini pies, flavorful comfort dish that’s been on the menu since 1890.

 

Chicago-style hot dogs at Portillo’s

Get a true Chicago style hot dog at Portillo’s, loaded with fresh and fine chopped raw onions, sliced tomatoes, mustard, relish, peppers, salt, ketchup and a kosher-style dog, nestled in a steamed poppy seed bun.

 

Music & Nightlife in Chicago

Mainstream pop, indie rock, blues, punk rock, hip hop, or jazz — if it's music, it’s there, live in Chicago any night of the week. With a number of incredible live music venues, historic music halls, and outdoor events such as Millennium Park concerts, Lollapalooza, the Chicago Blues and Jazz Festivals, Chicago is the birthplace of house music, Chicago-style jazz, and incredible local talent.
