Come on, babe Why don’t we paint the town?.. And all that jazz
There are not too many people in this World that haven’t seen the musical Chicago, or… at least heard of the Broadway show by the same name (that’s also based on the same play). Chicago, lovingly called Chi-Town by the locals, is one of the most famous cities in the United States (second only to New York City). In fact, Chi-Town is very much similar to its bigger sister, NYC, in terms of its high-rising buildings, its vibrant food and art scene, and of course its windy, Arctic climate (though New York’s weather is a lot less extreme than Chicago’s).
So if you haven’t had a chance yet to visit this magnificent city – the gallery below will provide you with a quick visual introduction. P.S. and if you’re planning to visit Chicago soon – come during the Summer, if you’re not prepared to be very cold.
The Cloud Gate sculpture (aka “The Bean”), was installed in 2006, and is very popular among tourists.
The Millennium Park is especially beautiful during the Spring season – when everything is in full bloom.
The beautiful Wrigley Building, one of the culturally important and most famous landmarks in Chi-Town.
The beautiful Chicago River, the main artery of this town.
