Midwest,Chicago

Chicago, Illinois


"The Second City" is the Midwest's most vibrant metropolis. Witness Wrigley Field's famous ivy-covered walls as you take in a daytime baseball game. Lake Michigan hosts numerous fun events, including an annual Air & Water Show that bills itself as the largest spectator event in the United States. The city's Field Museum is home to Tyrannosaurus Sue, the largest and most complete T-Rex skeleton ever found. Of course, no trip to Chicago is complete without an artery-clogging meal or three; try Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza for a real Chicago treat.
