Things to do with kids in Chicago

About Chicago, IL

They call it the "Windy City" but Chicago is known for so much more. The famous Wrigley field, museums, and an iconic skyline all make this city special. As a result of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 that destroyed downtown Chicago, many of today's buildings are known for their originality and bold architecture.
