Chicago may often be overshadowed by its larger counterparts New York and Los Angeles, but it is a world-class city that offers visitors a variety of culture, food and entertainment options. Here are a few must-see destinations the next time you find yourself in the Windy City.
1. Take a Ride on the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier
Chicago’s premier waterfront destination may be a tad touristy, but it’s worth going just for the gorgeous view you can get from the top of the 196-foot high Ferris wheel located on site. This entertainment complex also features an 18-hole mini golf course, old fashioned swing ride and is home to the Chicago Children’s Museum.
2. Go for a night out on the town at the Green Mill
Experience a bit of Chicago history by visiting the iconic Green Mill cocktail lounge. First opened in 1907, they definitely don’t make them like this anymore. In addition to its ties to the Chicago mob scene, this lounge is known for the poetry slams it hosts every Sunday night.
