Chicago: Nothing but the Best

20 December 2018

Though we’ll admit we’re biased, those of us at 1000M strongly believe that Chicago is the best big city out there. With scenic parks and lakefronts, spectacular museums and an expansive restaurant scene, Chicago has something for everyone. And we’re not alone; Chicago was voted the best big city for a second time by Condé Nast Traveler readers. So what makes the Windy City so popular? Here are a few of our favorite reasons:

Chicago was voted the best big city for a second time by Condé Nast Traveler readers. So what makes the Windy City so popular? Here are a few of our favorite reasons.

 

World-class Museums

And lots of them. Chicago’s museum scene includes the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Museum of Mexican Art, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the list goes on. Right across from 1000M, Chicago’s Museum Campus houses the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum of Natural History. Chicago even hosted a pop-up Pizza Museum this fall. So no matter what your interests, there’s a museum for everyone.

 

Plenty of Green Space

Just because Chicago is a sprawling metropolis doesn’t mean residents and visitors can’t enjoy the great outdoors. Our lakefront is a crowd favorite (and 1000M boasts some of the best views of the splendid Lake Michigan), but Chicago has a wide range of outdoor activities. From biking the 606 to exploring Garfield Park Conservatory, there are plenty of ways to get outside.

 

Amazing Entertainment

With famous Second City alumni such as Tina Fey, Bill Murray and Steve Carell, it’s no surprise that Chicago breeds fantastic talent. Chicago isn’t just home to quality comedy; you can find everything from rock shows at the Chicago Theater, to performances at Navy Pier’s Shakespeare Theater, to jazz sessions at The Green Mill. Or get the best of indoors and outdoors at the annual Grant Park Music Festival.
