Chicago, also known as the Windy City is located in the state of Illinois and is the largest
metropolitan area in the Midwest. It is a beautiful old city located right on Lake Michigan offering it
fantastic water views from the many high rise buildings there. Chicago had a horrible fire in 1871
where much of the city was devastated and had to be rebuilt by contractors in Chicago. During
that time, amazing architecture was produced by a Chicago general contractor and architects and
much of it can be enjoyed on the architectural cruise in the city.

There are so many wonderful things to do and see in Chicago and this article will just touch on a
few favorites. It is recommended that you stay in one of the fine hotels near the magnificent mile
on Michigan Ave. or near the recently constructed Millenium Park. Both of these locations are
great and close to the many different sites to see. If you are not afraid of heights then a visit to the
tallest building, The Sears Tower is a must see for a complete aerial view of the downtown area as
well as the lake. Because it is so high, the building has been known to close the top floors down
on windy days.

For sports fans, Chicago is a great city with two major league baseball teams, The Chicago Cubs
and The Chicago White Sox, a huge football stadium to see the Chicago Bears NFL team play and
the famous NBA team the Chicago Bulls where Michael Jordan played for years. All of these
professional sports can be seen in the downtown area and many visitors center their visit
surrounding one of these games. The Chicago fans are some of the most loyal and vocal fans in
the country so getting a ticket to a game should be done well in advance.

Chicago is also known for the great museums, zoos and aquarium. If you are a fan of the arts, the
Field museum and the Contemporary Museum of Art rival other art museums in larger cities and
should be seen. The Shedd Aquarium also is a great place to visit and has the largest collection of
Beluga Whales in North America. The Lincoln Park Zoo is also one of the oldest free zoos in the
country so a visit to that is great and obviously inexpensive too.

Food is a big reason people like to visit Chicago. There is a Little Italy as well as a Greek town in
Chicago that have amazing restaurants to be found. Two foods that this city is known for are the
Chicago style deep dish pizza and the infamous Superdawg hot dog that is served with a variety of
condiments special to Chicago like mustard, no ketchup, onion salt and a kosher pickle. There are
also several top restaurants available for the foodies traveling here too.

Chicago is a great city to see and many celebrities are proud to call it their home like Oprah
Winfrey, President Barack Obama, and many actors and musicians.
Connor Sullivan recently hired a couple of contractors in Chicago to work on his in-laws home in
Illinois. The Chicago general contractor did a great job on their home.
