VTers have described Chicago as cold and windy. But if you happen to visit its suburbs or other Illinois towns by the lakes, you will forget about the cold of Chicago. It is really freezing outside of the city.

In the winters the exposure to outside climate may be short, but it can bring a serious calamity on a casual tourist. Be warned upfront. No matter how prepared you feel naturally, take adequate measures by bundeling up properly.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
