Windy City

Often depicted in gangster movies and home to the first high rises, Chicago has its own charm which has attracted travelers from all around the world for many years. Nowadays, it is a vibrant city with a population of 3 million, which is most renowned for its blues, jazz and fabulous modern architecture. There is so much to see that you could spend months and still discover new, exciting things! There are literally hundreds of direct flights each week from the UK to Chicago and even more connecting flights this makes it relatively easy to book cheap flights to Chicago at any time of year. So go ahead and discover this gem for yourself.

Before Fort Dearborn was built in 1803, Chicago was mostly swamps and prairie. In 1833, it became a town and rapidly grew into a huge city. The Chicago fire of 1871 which burnt down about half of the city then was seized as an opportunity to build even bigger and more impressive buildings, which now are part of the city's impressive architectural heritage. Hence, a guided tour around some of its gems should be on your bucket list. Particularly The Loop and Michigan Ave are home to many of the architectural landmarks and known for their great shops and restaurants. For those who want to know more about Chicago's architecture, there are free exhibitions at the Chicago Cultural Center, which got great reviews on TripAdvisor. Round this off with a bird view of the city on the Skydeck of Willis Tower, and don't miss out on taking a stroll through the Millenium Park and having some fun at the Cloud Gate!

Despite being known as the "windy city", Chicago actually isn't any more windy than other US cities. So don't be too worried about the climate. However, be prepared for cold temperatures in winter time!

Of course, you can get away from most of this if you enter some of the most magnificent churches and cathedrals Chicago has to offer. The Rockefeller Memorial Chapel and the Holy Name Cathedral are two that should definitely be on your bucket list. Also, a visit to Chicago without attending a jazz or blues concert seems a little out of place. Do check out the Green Mill, the Jazz Showcase or the B.L.U.E.S. club to enjoy Chicago at its best.

If you are a foodie, you will also get your heart's fill in Chicago. The city has great restaurants, and you can check out a wide range of ethnic cuisines in the different neighborhoods. Fast food lovers will particularly like the Polish Village and Belmont-Central.

Getting around in Chicago is a breeze. Besides an extensive trains and bus networks, you can also get a cab anytime or even get around by bike.

Travel to Chicago from April to September if you like warmer temperatures. Winter is relatively mild but not necessarily the time you want to spend hours out and about!
