CHICAGO INFORMATION

Chicago, known as the Windy City is the third most populous city in the United States. There are few more dramatic urban landscapes than the hip windy city of Al Capone and High Fidelity. Skyscrapers decked like dominoes stand tall on the banks of Lake Michigan while the Chicago River cuts through the heart of downtown, separating your business district from your shopping and entertainment on the North Side. Chicago was the site of the world's first skyscraper, and today is the architectural, financial, and cultural capital of the Midwest and transportation center of the country. Chicago's skyscrapers, local cuisine, political traditions, and sports teams are some of its most recognized symbols.
