Chicago

Rising off the southern edge of Lake Michigan are the skyscrapers that immediately distinguish the midwestern city of Chicago, Illinois from the surrounding farmland. Despite its bitterly cold winters, Chicago is among the largest of the US cities and is famed for its bold art deco and modern architecture that was largely built after the city was demolished by a fire in 1871 – rumored to have been caused by an irritable cow. In the decades to follow, the city blossomed into a modern metropolis where hungry visitors can visit some of the best restaurants in the United States, or opt for a classic “deep dish” pizza.
