Discover Chicago

Scale the Skydeck

Get an incredible 360-degree view of Chicago from the second-tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. If you're feeling brave, step out on The Ledge, a knee-trembling glass floor, 1353ft up! See our blog for more sky high tips.

Watch the White Sox

Live the American dream and check out a baseball game while in town. The US Cellular Field stadium is home to the famous Chicago White Sox. For other Chicago must-sees, our blog has you covered.

Delectable delights

Catch a flight to Chicago and taste a real speciality – the deep-dish pizza. Far from the delicate Italian version, it sports a buttery crust up to three inches tall, full of cheese, toppings and sauce.

Shop 'til you drop

Chicago boasts some excellent shopping spots. Stroll the Magnificent Mile, the city’s chic designer destination, browse the antiques and homeware shops of River North, or hit the hip boutiques of Bucktown.

Party with a difference

Dance in a converted church at the spectacular Excalibur club, which was once a makeshift morgue, or venture down to The Drifter, a genuine former speakeasy where the daily changing drinks list is printed on tarot cards.
