Flights to Chicago

Chicago is the third largest city in the United States and has a distinctive charm that’s all its own. A lot of that comes down to the people; it’s located right at the heart of the American Midwest, known for its friendly residents, smiling faces and positive attitude.

Chicagoans will go out of their way to help you (even if you don’t look particularly out of place or lost), in spite of the fast-paced life that goes with being an economic and cultural metropolis.

Chicago began as a key point between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River, growing up in an era of expansion into the American West. It continued to play a key role connecting east and west during the 1800s as a railroad hub and growing economic centre.

Now, the city really is a hotbed of culture, filled with world-class museums, restaurants, concert halls, sports teams, theatres, live music, and more. While your flights to Chicago will uncover a traditional city with old customs holding firm, there’s also a vibrant young energy led by urban professionals pushing into new areas, both in terms of where they live and what they do. It's the home of President Barack Obama, who celebrated his two elections in the massive and magical Grant Park, one of the city's many green spaces.

Despite its nickname as The Windy City, there’s nothing particularly biting about the cool wind that blows off Lake Michigan. (It’s said that the phrase dates back to the 1800s, when local politicians were referred to as being “full of hot air”). However, you might still want to wrap up warm when you’re taking a stroll around the lake, which is the largest of the Great Lakes in North America.

When it comes to food – start with the pizza. Chicago is famous for its deep dish pizzas, massive mountains of toppings pilled high on top of huge, thick, satisfying slices of doughy goodness cooked to perfection in a fiery brick oven. In addition, the many ethnic enclaves – ranging from Vietnamese to Polish – offer their own specialties brought directly from their country of origin. The portions in Chicago are as generous and crowd-pleasing as the people who serve them.

In essence, to spend time in Chicago is to spend time in a cross-section of the United States, a place where the country comes together into one amazing amalgamation of culture and cuisine. It truly has something for everyone.

What to do in Chicago

Cheer with Chicago’s sports fans

Chicagoans are passionate about their sports teams – whether they’re cheering on Michael Jordan’s old team the Chicago Bulls, or are baseball fans batting for the Chicago Bears. To see the latter, visit Wrigley Field. This legendary sports field holds regular tours (and serves up some of the best hot dogs in the city).

Catch a film at Music Box Theatre

There's no better place to catch a movie and feel like part of Chicago's strong film tradition than this little indie theatre. While it only has a couple of screens, the carefully curated selection is of the highest quality while the old-fashioned feel will transport you back to the 1930s.

Browse the Richard H. Driehaus Museum

The lavish mansion of banker Samuel Nickerson has been turned into an impressive museum dedicated to the glories of the Gilded Age. You'll feel transported back in time by the exhibits and the surrounding splendour.

Where to eat in Chicago

Alinea (International)

Chef Grant Achatz's famous eatery in the middle of hip Lincoln Park might be the best restaurant in the city, winning the award three times along with three Michelin stars. You're coming here to see food turned into an art form. It tastes pretty darn good too.

1723 North Halsted Street
IL 60614
1 312 867 0110

Avec (International)

Paul Kahan is one of the city's best fine dining chefs and Avec is the casual spot where he can let his hair down and have some fun. It's the opposite of stuffy hospitality; instead, expect a high quality, hugely popular restaurant that’s as simple and smart as its classic wooden interior.

615 West Randolph Street
IL 60661
+1 312 377 2002

Carriage House (Southern)

This restaurant provides a taste of down home Southern cooking in the heart of Chicago's bohemian Wicker Park neighbourhood. You'll be left feeling satisfied as the soul food comes from the kitchen directly to your plate. Hit up the Sunday Fried Chicken dinner for a hefty portion at perfect prices.

1700 West Division Street
IL 60622

Places to stay in Chicago

Omni Chicago

Trek over the Chicago River to stay at this high-rise offering two-room suites, which are spacious yet very affordable. The Omni also makes as a good jumping-off point to explore the rest of the city, especially if you're planning to head north.

676 North Michigan Avenue
IL 60611
+1 312 944 6664

Hotel Chicago

The House of Blues sits right outside this hotel's entrance, which is a big perk. Other attractions such as Smith & Wollensky's famous steakhouse and architectural boat tours on the Chicago River are within walking distance of the River North destination.

333 North Dearborn Street
IL 60654
+1 312 245 0333

Talbott Hotel

The independent five-star Talbott is a shopper’s delight – it sits close enough to the shops on the Magnificent Mile that you'll easily be able to carry your new purchases back to its well-appointed rooms. There's a distinctly old world European feel to the Talbott, and an easy elegance that makes for a relaxing stay.
