About The Area

When Mrs. O'Leary's cow burned down the city of Chicago in 1871, there was no time wasted in building it back up bigger and better than before. "The Windy City" offers you culture, sports and delicious food, all with the famed friendliness that Chicagoans are known for.

Whatever your sport of choice, you'll find a strong sports culture here. With the Black Hawks, Bears, Cubs, Bulls and White Sox, there's never a lull in the action, especially when attending a game at iconic Wrigley Field. Whether you're digging into a classic Chicago-style deep dish pizza, exploring its mobster past, or solving one of Chicago’s many escape rooms, you'll never grow bored in this city.

Don't forget to check out the amazing parks, explore Navy Pier and take a trip to see "The Bean" because it just wouldn't be Chicago without it.
