Lake Michigan

Quick Guide: Chicago

Sports, great architecture, museums, excellent shopping, dining and outdoor activites; there's something for just about every personality in Chicago, Illinois.  I like to think of Chicago as a cleaner, smaller version of Manhattan.  (At least parts of it)  Chicago sits in northeast Illinois on the shores of Lake Michigan.  As someone who's been visiting Chicago for nearly 30 years, and grew up just down the road in St. Louis, I'm going to give you a quick guide to the city.
