Now a little about Chicago! Chicago is home to many outstanding culturally diverse neighborhoods, great food and historical sites such as Sears Tower.
The Windy City has a style and pace all its own. Little wonder that the Chairman of the Board christened it, "My kind of town!"
Chicago is home to many outstanding culturally diverse neighborhoods, great food and historical sites such as Sears Tower.
Sears Tower is the tallest building in the United States and third tallest building in the world. A visit to the Sears Tower Skydeck offers breathtaking views of the Chicago cityscape. From this vantage point, it is possible to spot many popular Chicago attractions including the Wrigley Building, Lincoln Park Zoo, and Navy Pier.
Wrigley Field is the second-oldest ballpark in the majors behind Boston's Fenway Park (1912). As one of America's oldest, it is also one of the best-loved ballparks. Wrigley Park is home to the Chicago Cubs and has been the site of many historic baseball moments, including Babe Ruth's "called shot," when Ruth allegedly pointed to a bleacher location during Game 3 of the 1932 World Series ... Ruth then hit Charlie Root's next pitch for a homer, Sammy Sosa's 60th home runs in 1998, 1999 and 2001 and the 1947, 1962 and 1990 All-Star Games.
In the mood for shopping mixed with sightseeing, Michigan Avenue has what you are in search of. This main downtown thoroughfare includes the Magnificent Mile, a stretch full of every store imaginable and several of the city's landmark buildings. Shopping includes many high-end shops, as well as smaller boutiques and a large shopping mall with a very special Lego Store.
In the mood for some pizza, try the classic “Chicago-style pizza” (a.k.a. deep dish pizza). This is absolutely one of the Windy City's signature foods. The debate wages on as to who has the best deep dish. Pizzeria Uno lays claim to inventing the Chicago deep-dish pizza, and by the quality of their pizza pie, although, you will find great options at Lou Malnati's and Pizzeria Due, too.
And then there are the people of Chicago, whose wry wit, Midwestern values, and friendly demeanor make the city one of the world's most hospitable. Combine that with a wealth of diversions and an awe-inspiring skyline, and it's easy to see why Chicago has been romanticized in poetry, song, TV, and film time and time again. Indeed, Chicago is now more than ever "everybody's kind of town."
