Illinois is the land of adventure and home to one of the most popular American cities: Chicago. Also known as the Windy City, Chicago is known as a hub for architecture, food, fine art, and fun. Architecture lovers should take an architecture tour or cruise out on Lake Michigan to see the impressive skyline. Buckingham Fountain and Cloud Gate (aka “the bean”) are also popular destinations you can find in Millenium Park. For the artists, be sure to visit the Art Institute of Chicago to see some famous pieces of art. You can visit one of Chicago’s beaches on the shores of Lake Michigan when you want to relax. Or you can enjoy an evening on Navy Pier or along the Chicago River. Foodies will love the restaurant scene and you absolutely have to try a deep-dish pizza.
