Chicago is the third most populous city in the USA (after New York City and Los Angeles) with 2.7 million residents. It was incorporated as a City in 1837 and grew rapidly during the 19th Century, enjoying a privileged position on a continental divide connecting the Mississippi River and Great Lakes and lying on the southern western shores of the fresh water Lake Michigan.


Today you can enjoy an array of activities including sightseeing on the river trips (which go through the middle of City); visiting Lincoln Park Zoo and Navy Pier or soaking up the architecture; shopping in the famous Golden Mile and enjoying the outstanding gastronomy available throughout the City.
