More About The City

Foundation for Chicago architecture offers more than 70 different tours for visitors and they expect more than 600,000 people to visit different parts of the city this year. The world’s very first skyscraper was built in Chicago in 1885. Decades that followed brought turbulent events in economy, politics, and crime. Today, a walk around Chicago is a walk to remember. Two highest towers in United States are in Chicago, the Sears Tower and the Trump Tower, standing as symbols of this city.

Chicago is the biggest city of Illinois State and can be divided into four parts: North, South, West, and East. The dividing point is at State and Madison Street junction. Michigan Avenue is the main street, equivalent to Fifth Avenue in New York, along which are located the National Museum, the Navy Pear, the harbor, the City Gallery, but also the most beautiful parks like Grant, Jackson, and Lincoln park.

The Millennium Park represents the park of the future. It was officially opened in 2004 and this year it celebrates its ten-year anniversary.

Chicago is a metropolis with quality and diverse everyday life, and considering it is located in the middle of America all other parts seem that much closer (is it in the middle of America?). This city is a fun place for everyone with a handful of activities to remember no matter the age, gender, color of skin or language.
