Chicago Holidays

The Windy City

City urbanism meets tranquil parks and cultural hotspots in Chicago, the Windy City.

For panoramic views of the city, head to the Willis Tower; the 103rd floor Skydeck to be exact. Gaze down on the glittering skyline and across Lake Michigan for a sight punctured with skyscrapers and natural beauty. If it’s awe-inspiring architecture you’re after, head to Millennium Park, home to the world’s largest rooftop garden, before settling into one of the city’s many Blues Bars for some 1920’s music and a drink or two. The Field Museum is well worth a visit too, housing artefacts from the prehistoric age, ancient Egypt and China’s Terracotta Warriors.

For more city buzz, head to New York before or after your Chicago break. Or, visit Los Angeles for some Hollywood glamour and designer shopping.
