    Experience Chicago: sights, tours and activities

    Chicago has a lot going for it. In the summer the city lives for the live music in Millennium Park when festivals like Pitchfork and Lollapalooza roll up. Deep-dish pizza on the waterfront or on the steps of the Art Institute is just the beginning of the foodie treats waiting in Chicago.

    Essentials in Chicago

    Millennium Park: There’s no better place to be in the summertime than Millennium Park. Home to “The Bean,” now a symbol for the city, and other worlds of art, the park also hosts a ton of free concerts at the Pritzker Pavilion. Bring a blanket and a couple of cold ones to enjoy on the lawn while you listen.

    Art Institute of Chicago: As the second largest art museum in the country, you can bet that the Art Institute has a pretty handsome collection. Give yourself at least 2-3 hours to see the museum’s highlights but if you’re really into art, you can easily spend the entire day here.

    Public Art: Chicago has some pretty amazing public art. One piece, known as “The Picasso” was commissioned from the artist when he was 82 years old and was built in steel to his specifications. Across the street is a piece by Joan Miró. Wander around long enough and you’ll stumble upon works by Jean Dubuffet, Marc Chagall and Alexander Calder.

    Hotels and accommodation in Chicago

    Chicago is a convention city with no shortage of hotel rooms. Just keep in mind that during major conventions, hotel room prices shoot up and rooms in certain areas can be scarce. Chicago is a huge city and hotels outside the downtown area are cheaper. Just make sure you have easy access to a CTA train line if you don’t plan to rent a car for your trip.
