Welcome to Chicago! Bordered the turquoise waters of Lake Michigan and spanning the picturesque Chicago River, this metropolis is one of the nation's top business centers and more. Chicago boasts a vibrant mix of cultural events, recreation opportunities, and spectacular architecture. Shoppers can wander the world-famous Magnificent Mile, outdoor enthusiasts can cycle almost 20 miles of lakeside paths, and both visitors and residents can enjoy countless festivals -- including 200 annual parades. Add all that to a tradition of hospitality and plentiful summer sunshine, and it's no wonder Chicago draws 25 million visitors each year.
