Chicago is on the picturesque shore of Lake Michigan in Illinois . The third largest city in the United States . Known as “The Windy City” due to breezes off the lake and sometimes as “The City That Works” a promotional campaign that recognises the long hours worked by residents.

The majority of Chicago's attractions are located in the lively and large downtown area. More so than in other metropolises, Chicago is split into very distinct communities, with a number of major tourist areas. Many communities are split into smaller distinct neighborhoods. Unlike other big cities, these community areas are often self-sufficient, and each one has its own feel and ethnic past.

Wicker Park and Bucktown is the place for restaurants, bars and boutiques. Most attractions lie in the downtown or North Side area with some are on the South Side.
