Location – Chicago
Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards rank Chicago #1 on
its list of Best Big Cities in the U.S. for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year.
Situated on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes, Chicago, is the third most populous U.S. city and the urban hub of the Midwest. It’s an international center of finance, culture, commerce, education, technology, telecommunications, and transportation, as well as a multicultural home to nearly 3 million residents who reside in the city’s 77 designated community areas.
The Loop is the city’s central business district and commercial core, known for its dynamic architecture, world-class dining and shopping, and Chicago’s famous theater district, as well as such attractions as the 110-story Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), 360 Chicago Observation Deck, and the Chicago Cultural Center. The Loop also boasts beautiful waterfront parks such as the Chicago Riverwalk — a scenic 1.5-mile pedestrian promenade with restaurants, benches, and lookout points — and Grant Park, Chicago’s 319-acre front yard, home to Millenium Park, The Bean, Buckingham Fountain, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
