Chicago, Illinois: The Windy City

The origin of Chicago’s famous nickname is not totally clear.  Many believe that it got this name from the blustery winds that blow off Lake Michigan and sweep through the city’s streets.  Others believe it has to do with the residents and Chicago’s politicians being “full of hot air.” Whatever you want to believe, its definitely a place worth exploring! With much to do in this bustling city, many say it feels like home.  There are world-class museums, fabulous theatre options, and many restaurant options including those that serve Chicago’s famous deep-dish pizza!  Let us help you customize and take your trip to THE NEXT LEVEL!
