Located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, the Windy City has a multicultural flavour like no other; here you can visit Greek Town, Little Italy, Chinatown, Little Saigon or the Ukrainian Village, amongst others, to experience some fantastic speciality bars, restaurants and eateries. You’ll also find world-class department stores and the shopping malls of the Magnificent Mile; award-winning restaurants; the beautiful parks and beaches of Lakeshore Drive; a famous symphony hall, opera hall and ballet and the view from the Sears Tower’s 103rd-floor Observation Deck. It has been said that no other city has influenced the rest of the world, in terms of modern architecture, quite as much as Chicago. Take a boat ride along the Chicago River and see for yourself, whilst marvelling at the scale of state-of-the-art high-ride design that the city encapsulates. Alternatively, hop on and off one of the city's Green or Red Trolleys or double-decker buses fro a fun-filled sightseeing tour. At night, Chicago really comes into its own – enjoy the famous Chicago-style blues and jazz music in vibrant venues that stay open into the not-so-early hours.
