Illinois at a Glance
Despite its sprawling size, Chicago is surprisingly simple to navigate. In fact, it's
possible to take on the entire city armed with little more than a sense of adventure and a
map of the Chicago Transit Authority's extensive system of trains and buses.
Whether you're traveling to Chicago to soak up sun in the bleachers at
Wrigley Field or to network with business contacts at McCormick Place, you're likely to
discover some unexpected pleasures.
Chicago, much like New York City, is an active city year-round. If
you're not afraid of the weather, winter is a beautiful time to visit as the city is
decorated for Christmas.

Travel and tourism links for Illinois.
A Taste of Chicago: by Lori Enos.
If you'd love to take a culinary trip around the world but can't afford
the air fare, then Chicago's Grant Park is the place to be. The annual Taste
of Chicago is a food-lover's dream.
Chicago - Stop the Train, I Want to Get Off: by Ron Callari.
No other American city has been as defined by its railroads and
neighborhoods as Chicago. Once the Transcontinental Railroad
was completed in 1869, Chicago became the natural hub for the nation's rail traffic.
Inside the Windy City: by Rita Cook.
Of course there is a wind that comes off of Lake Michigan, but in the winter
the area around the lake tends to be 10 degrees warmer than other parts of Chicago, and in
the summer it is a comfortable 10 degrees cooler.
