Chicago is often considered a capital of global architecture, with a population that rivals that of New York and Los Angeles.

Things to Do in Chicago
Chicago is one of the most visited cities in the U.S., and for good reason. One of its most iconic buildings is the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), which held the title of the world's tallest building from 1973-1998. Chicago is also home to a thriving theater industry with hundreds of theaters scattered throughout the city. If you're an art lover, you can view modern and classical works of art in the many museums and galleries in the city, several of which offer free admission.
The rich cultural scene of Chicago also includes music, with the city being particularly well known as a hot spot for jazz, blues and hip-hop. It was the birthplace of the smooth Chicago blues, and is where electronica house music originated. You can enjoy classical outdoor concerts at both Millennium Park and Harris Park, hosted by the city's world-renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
