Chicago: The Windy City - Barrhead Travel Blog

The Windy City

A city steeped in culture and modern architectural elegance, a trip to Chicago will offer everything you desire from a city break in the one trip – shopping, an amazing music and theatre scene, over 5500 restaurants, professional sports and unique attractions. You’ll leave with unforgettable memories and anticipation to plan your next trip.

Combining the hustle and bustle of a major city with over 70 eclectic neighbourhoods, Chicago offers a completely dynamic holiday where you’ll experience the best of both worlds. Chicago’s synonymous with an impressive outline of skyscrapers and the striking views won’t disappoint. Check out Willis Tower, America’s tallest building, as it soars high above the sky. Other landmarks include the Magnificent Mile, the prestigious shopping district that sits on Michigan Avenue with many shops for you to love treating yourself in.

Michigan Avenue also hosts Tilt – an observation deck that extends outwards on the 94th floor, that offers views of up to 50 miles of Chicago’s gorgeous skyline as well as Lake Michigan and four other states. Those who suffer from vertigo may want to instead try Navy Pier, a 3300 foot-long pier that sits on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Filled with attractions, shops and places to eat, you can spend the whole day discovering its delights. You can even take a sightseeing tour from the pier and discover the city by boat.

Other gems, such as the abundance of diverse neighbourhoods dotted throughout the city, offers an authentic slice of Chicago with boutiques, a plethora of dining options and history and culture as you’ve never seen it. Take a visit to the neighbourhoods in the North and experience jazz music and comedy sketches, and a cuisine that boasts Ethiopian, Mexican and Middle Eastern fare, as well as many more foods from around the world.
