Illinois at a Glance

Chicago, Illinois - Compare Hotels

Chicago, Illinois

Despite its sprawling size, Chicago is surprisingly simple to navigate. In fact, it's possible to take on the entire city armed with little more than a sense of adventure and a map of the Chicago Transit Authority's extensive system of trains and buses.

Whether you're traveling to Chicago to soak up sun in the bleachers at Wrigley Field or to network with business contacts at McCormick Place, you're likely to discover some unexpected pleasures.

Chicago, much like New York City, is an active city year-round. If you're not afraid of the weather, winter is a beautiful time to visit as the city is decorated for Christmas.

Illinois Travel Notes

Chicago, Illinois

A Taste of Chicago: by Lori Enos.

If you'd love to take a culinary trip around the world but can't afford the air fare, then Chicago's Grant Park is the place to be. The annual Taste of Chicago is a food-lover's dream.

Chicago - Stop the Train, I Want to Get Off: by Ron Callari.

No other American city has been as defined by its railroads and neighborhoods as Chicago. Once the Transcontinental Railroad was completed in 1869, Chicago became the natural hub for the nation's rail traffic.

Inside the Windy City: by Rita Cook.

Of course there is a wind that comes off of Lake Michigan, but in the winter the area around the lake tends to be 10 degrees warmer than other parts of Chicago, and in the summer it is a comfortable 10 degrees cooler.
