City Focus: Chicago
We take a look at Chicago this week for our city focus. Nestled away in the Midwest state of Illinois, the city of Chicago is a bustling metropolis that still manages to retain a small-town feel amongst the skyscrapers and subways.
One of the biggest attractions in Chicago often comes as a surprise to many people – the beach. The city of Chicago is bordered by one of America’s Great Lakes – Lake Michigan. Along the shores of the lake just on the edge of the city lies a beautiful man-made beach along with running tracks, restaurants and lots of sunbathers during the warmer months.
Chicago is also great for entertainment with some great restaurants and bars all over the city. If you’re a pizza fan do not miss out on sampling some deep dish pizza. Make sure you ask the locals for tips on where to sample this amazing Chicago speciality. Bars and clubs can be found all over the city too.
