"The Windy City - No kidding!!!" Chicago by Bilimari

Chicago Travel Guide: 5,908 reviews and 12,104 photos

I go through the O'Hara airport many times a year, but actually visit the town only once a year, usually in November/December, which is why all of my Chicago photos are so gloomy.

Like the last visit (Dec. 2005), the temperature was only 5F with wind-chill -15F!!! One night, I walked 1 block from the restaurant to the street corner to catch a taxi, I stepped on ice, and fell flat forward... both of my knees are bruised... not sexy... not at all. (T_T)

But Chicago is a beautiful city, and got so much to offer. Food is great, the shopping is great, culturally rich, and people are very nice. I just need to visit there in Spring or Summer to really enjoy the city, and to take some photos with blue sky in a background.

    The Hilton is a nice place to be right in the middle of all the action. Nice description of the city.

    You need to visit Chicago in the summer or fall when it is fantastic. You can then take an architectural tour, especially along the Chicago River.

    Welcome to Chicago, where three hour airport delays are part of the game =)
