Guide To Chicago
“Chicago is second to none!” wrote a proud local to a magazine that dared to call her ‘the Second City'. It's a sentiment that's shared by many that have come to love the big city with a small-town character. After the great fire of 1871, the city emerged phoenix-like from its ashes to become a hotbed of diverse cultures, art, theater, music and culinary traditions. And, lest you forget, a thriving economy that embraces cutting edge technology, communication and entrepreneurial spirit.

With so many sights to see and adventures to experience, it's tough to decide where to start.

Perhaps a taste of Chicago's rich cultural heritage will be the ideal starting point to your Chicago itinerary. Check out the imposing Chicago Cultural Center, an ode in marble-and-mosaic to numerous concerts, shows and art exhibits staged here. While here, check out the Museum of Broadcast Communications with its imposing Tiffany glass dome. Step out into Michigan Avenue, which is famous for the stretch called the Magnificent Mile, while lies between the Chicago River and Lincoln Park up North.

Less than two blocks from the Magnificent Mile, don't miss the European-style Talbott Hotel , which dates back to 1927 and is an integral part of Chicago's unique cultural heritage.

Before heading for the world-famous shopping that awaits you at Magnificent Mile, saunter off to the John Hancock Building, then catch a glimpse of the tall spires of the Sears Tower, which was the world's tallest building till 1996.

As you marvel at each heritage-steeped building, the “Mag Mile” stands ready to pamper you with some of the swankiest megastores, branded outlets and unique boutique shops.

Some of Chicago's finest hotels are just a few blocks away. From the familiar Holiday Inn City Center at E. Ohio Street to the elegant Club Quarters and Hyatt Regency Downtown at Wacker Drive. The Hyatt Regency Downtown brings you within 1 block of Wringley Building, with the romantic Buckingham fountain just 7 blocks away.

The turning on of the fountain signals the summer, which is celebrated with an eclectic show of light, water and music every hour. The show goes on for 20 mesmerizing minutes, spurting the sweetness of summer several feet into the air.

The Art Institute of Chicago is clearly visible as soon as you step into Michigan Avenue from the Chicago Cultural Center. The Institute has shaped Chicago's art movement since 1892 and houses one of the nation's finest collection of paintings.

As you step back into Michigan Avenue, check out another legendary hotel that rubs shoulders with the Magnificent Mile. The Tremont Hotel is located on Chestnut between Michigan Avenue and Rush Street. A 1928 building, the Hotel was completely restored in 1996 and is just 7 blocks shy of the famed Museum of contemporary Arts. From Michigan Avenue, turn right into State Street, where the Embassy Suites Downtown holds court. As one of Chicago's finest hotels, it stands apart from the pompous yet faceless addresses that mark the ‘big city' mindset.

After strolling past the magnificent stores, head for the Chicago River. Form a corner of the Michigan Avenue Bridge, you could take a boat cruise past the movable bridges that are a Chicago ‘trademark'.

Next, cab it to Lincoln Park, thronged with skaters, mothers pushing strollers and excited kids peeking out of car windows as harried parents look for a place to park. The Lincoln Park Zoo offers free entry into the world of Gorillas, Galapagos turtles, Monstrous monitor lizards, bats and exotic spiders.

Just three blocks away from Lincoln Park, the Majestic Hotel (West Brampton Ave) holds court. In addition to its attentive staff, the hotel offers a complimentary continental breakfast and afternoon tea. Its 52 suites feature butler pantries with refrigerator, microwave and wet bar. Acclaimed for its unique “sense of 19 th century French countryside”, The Willows Hotel is great for a stay within a stone's throw from Lincoln Park.

The Chicago Historical Society is nearby, tempting you with an exciting adventure back in time, with the city's native history of fur trapping to the historic Fort Dearborn Massacre to the emergence of the hi-tech city of today.

Cab it to the Millennium Knickerbocker (East Walton Place) with some of Chicago's most popular landmarks within a few blocks of its doorstep. Most prominent among them is the Navy Pier, which was once more frequented by vessels than notable neighbor New York. Today the area is home to Shakespeare Theater and an exhilarating Ferris Wheel, which was specially invented to offer a glimpse of the sparkling lakefront.

From its peaceful location in the heart of Lincoln Park, the Days Inn Gold Coast offers a complimentary shuttle to the Field Museum nearby, which is bound to thrill you with the world's best-preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex.

More thrills and excitement await you less than two miles away, at Chicago's celebrated Theater District.

While the city's excitement shows no sign of abating, there's only so much you can see and do during your Chicago stay. And that's all the reason you need, to come back another day!
