"WINDY CITY" Chicago by Maggies

Chicago Travel Guide: 5,918 reviews and 12,131 photos

I've been here four times and I guess I'm going to visit again. I have a cousin living in the suburbs of Chicago. The first time I went there was summer 1999 and I was really shocked. Everything looked so different to me - starting at the airport and finishing at my cousin's apartament.
Anyway, I got used to that, I must say I really got to like this place a lot and I came back in summer 2000 and summer 2001... and I was there this summer too, standing at my cousin's wedding.

    I lived in the suburbs for 30 years-but you still have the better city to visit and see history and culture

    It's always interesting to hear reactions and impressions from overseas visitors to Chicago. It gives a different perspective!

    So glad to see that you enjoyed Chicago and found it interesting, cultural, and filled with great sites. You've done a good job presenting it with narration and photographs that are great.

    One of my favorite US cities. Lots to see and do....don't forget the Frank Lloyd Wright homes.

    Quite a thorough overview of the tourist attractions. Hope you got to explore the real city too.
