In many ways, Chicago has everything you could want from a great international city—beautiful buildings, amazing food and entertainment, and a history of contributing to art, culture, and te

chnology on a global scale. Add to that list its idyllic lakeside location and diverse population of friendly people, and what else do you need? Here are just a few reasons to make the trip.

Stunning skyscrapers

As the city that invented them, skyscrapers are a big part of Chicago’s heritage. The best early examples and preserved Art Deco masterpieces from the 1920s blend in beautifully with some of the world’s tallest and innovative structures to make up the more than 100 skyscrapers that currently form Chicago’s skyline. With new ones opening all the time, the city’s reputation for architecture is only set to grow.

World-class museums

The only potential problem with coming to Chicago for some of the world’s best museums is picking which ones to visit. Whether you decide to see the world’s largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex at The Field Museum, the Western Hemisphere’s largest science museum at the Museum of Science and Industry, or learn more about the city itself at the Chicago History Museum, there’s no wrong choice.

A vibrant art scene

Whatever your taste, there’s a vast amount of art to enjoy in the city’s museums, galleries, and public spaces. Without even leaving the Art Institute of Chicago, you can see Monet’s Water Lilies, Grant Wood’s American Gothic, and Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, as featured in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. If you prefer contemporary art, there are dozens of independent galleries and studios to visit, showcasing some of the best local and international talent working today.
