111 Places in Chicago

That You Must Not Miss


Chicago. City of the Big Shoulders. What started off as a small fur-trading settlement is today a bustling metropolis. Once considered the “hog butcher of the world,” “stacker of wheat,“ and “player with railroads,” Chicago’s colorful past remains hidden in the nooks and crannies of this wonderful windy city.  Adventures await, from the glamourous to the gritty: Sip dirty martinis in an elegant, underground, 1920’s bank vault. Paddle a kayak down the infamous Bubbly Creek of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle.   


Whether you're an out-of-towner or a diehard Chicago dweller who thinks you’ve seen it all, these 111 hidden places are waiting for you to seek out and enjoy.
