Chicago, unlike many iconic American cities, couples a bustling city metropolis with 15 miles of beautiful shoreline with several public beaches. In the height of summer, you'd never guess that you were relaxing on the edge of a lake in a bustling city. While you're on the beach, you can enjoy scenery reminiscent of the Florida coast, with stunning white sand and crystal blue waters, if you turn around, you'll be greeted by an immense skyline that rivals those of many other major US cities. Chicago is said to be the home of the skyscraper, so if it’s an adrenaline rush you crave, consider visiting 360 Chicago, one of the city’s tallest buildings.

Alongside strolling along the picturesque beaches, consider taking a trip to Navy Pier.
