Chicago is a bustling metropolitan hub with iconic architecture, a distinct local culture, and every type of entertainment you can imagine. A river cruise through downtown will give you a unique perspective of the city, with guides offering a wealth of knowledge on the history and architecture central to the city's flavor. Art lovers will absolutely want to check out the Art Institute of Chicago, which houses one of the country's most renowned collections of impressionist and post-impressionist art. Even if you don't have time for a game, a trip to Wrigley Field is a must; if the Chicago Cubs are playing, the energy at the Friendly Confines won't leave you disappointed. The options for nightlife are nearly endless, but a stop at Second City, the famous improv group that has started the careers of many of our greatest comedians, is a great way to start the evening.
