Chicago Travel guide
Chicago : Michelin's recommendations
Brawny and muscular, the commercial center of the American Midwest occupies a strategic position on the southern end of Lake Michigan at the point where the heartland meets the Great Lakes. Residences, office towers, commercial structures and industrial installations crowd Chicago's shorelines along with some of the inland US's loveliest beaches and parks. Architectural gems, both modern and historic, punctuate the uban skyline, and the "Second City" boasts numerous world-class museums and performing ensembles along with professional sports teams and leading universities, making it one of the top tourist destinations in the US.
