    It has a lot of variety

    You can really see the best of Chicago, by staying close to the lakeshore. Unless you have a car, then maybe visiting some of the northern suburbs may be interesting, As far as living a Luxe lifestyle.

    Insider Tip:Melrose Place is a great neighborhood restaurant. Serving American cuisine. Order a Club sandwich and soup of the day, its quite a meal.

    Chicago

    Chicago is by far one of the best cities I've visited yet! I've been over 3 continents and over 100 cities and 30 countries. This is by far one of the most amazing for: food; people; location; weather; culture; theatre... I could go on. You could say that these are all great about NYC aswell, but the difference, I find, is that Chicago is cleaner, less busy but still has that gorgeous big city vibe but without all the GOGOGO attitude and it has personality. I'll be coming back for sure.

    Insider Tip:Avoid the subways during rush hour ;) Try planning a bit before or a bit after, for whatever your destination purpose may be (dinner, lunch etc).

    Chicago, a perpetual delight lakeside

    The spirit of Chicago and its friendly citizens create a city form of living, a leitmotif of sentiment and purpose, a mid-west canvas of human spirit unlike others.

    Insider Tip:Enjoy the ambiance of your favorite neighborhood.
