To Go in Chicago

If all you know about Chicago is contained in the inside of busy and bustling O'Hare Airport - you're in for a treat ...

The Windy City got its name not only from the weather but it's long-held talent for self-promotion — but you can always count on Chicago to live up to the hype.

From it's earliest days as a 19th century port connecting the Great Lakes with the Mighty Mississippi, Chicago has grown to become home to almost 3 million residents, and the largest city in the US after New York and LA.

If you count 'Chicagoland', the popular name for the city's sprawling suburbs, you have all the makings of one of the largest urban centers on the entire planet.

Today, from its delectable dining to its family-friendly attractions, Chicago justly deserves its numerous awards as a great travel destination, forever making it to the top of America's list of "must sees".

Around the Web, get a taste of Chicago via a virtual tour of the Sears Tower (renamed the Willis Tower for its major occupant in 2009), or take a cyber walk around the city streets, stroll around Millennium Park, or discover what seasonal or holiday events are currently swirling around the Windy City ...
