    Second City no more.

    I just love Chicago. Summer or winter, it matters not, as the city has so much to offer. I come back every year, sometimes twice a year.

    I loved Chicago, its a busy city but much less tiring than NYC. The people are so friendly and its got a great historic story. I recommend visiting the Sears tower, the zoo and the aquarium!

    I think everyone should really consider doing a sight seeing bus. The guides are really great, really enthusiastic and clearly love their city. Plus they give you great tips for places to eat or things that we should see. Maybe even consider doing the architecture cruise. That was really amazing!
