Travel Type:
Alone

Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Check out the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Chicago Cultural Center (near millennium park).

Liked: It had the bustle and footprint of a large city. The architecture was beautiful. Very tourist friendly.

Disliked: Lots of hobos but that comes with the territory of being in a large city.
