Get to know Chicago with Viator

Chicago is known as the Second City, but this metropolis is no mere runner-up. Here, you'll find first-rate food (beyond deep dish pizza), stunning lake views, world-class museums, and incredible architecture (this is, after all, the birthplace of the skyscraper). The city bustles with energy, creativity, and entrepreneurship; it's where Kanye West and Barack Obama got their starts and Oprah Winfrey rose to fame.
