The Heartbeat of the Midwest

Chicago is the third largest city in the country and has quickly become the quintessential American city. It was the original link between the west and the east, making it an important transportation hub and industrial metropolis. The destruction of the Great Chicago Fire led to the city’s rebuilding, which resulted in Chicago becoming one of the most efficiently planned cities. With public transportation running 24/7, anything you need is in close proximity.

The city is referred to as the, “great receptor cities of the world,” for all of the talent that is born here and then is spread to other places. Discover the next Tina Fey or Steve Carell at one of Second City’s highly acclaimed improv shows. Put on your comfortable walking shoes and take a tour of Chicago’s architectural landscape. In the warm summer months, you can enjoy music performances in the park and 26 miles of public beaches. You’ll feel right at home with Chicagoans’ warm, mid-western generosity.
