Chicago is not just about the soaring skyscrapers. There are so many things to do that it will never fail to amaze you. In fact, this is the perfect place for a fun-filled vacation. If you are visiting the city anytime soon, here are a few things that you need to check out.

Lake and River Cruises

Sit back and enjoy cityscape along Chicago River and Lake Michigan. There are many lake tours available and you can choose the one that you like. The 40-minute tour kept me on my feet. It was an enthralling ride. I also took off in a speedboat for Minute Architecture Cruise at the Navy Training Center. You can head as fast as Willis Tower. In this tour, you will get a view of the over 40 listed landmarks.


Willis Tower which was 442 meters long had been the tallest building for about 25 years. Even now, it is one among the top 25. Get a ticket and speed up to the Skydeck. You can catch the movie that talks about the 45-year-old history of the tower along with the architectural wonders of Chicago. Take a swift ride to enjoy the breathtaking view. The Ledge will give you a buzz.

Food Tours

If you are foody, Chicago is the city for you. It is the top food city of America. Hot dogs to beers, I enjoyed every delectable item that this city has to offer. You can take food tours to satiate your hunger pangs. There are some tours that you can take on foot.

Grant Park

This is also known as the front yard of Chicago. It is the prime open space of the city. The park covers an area of 319 acres and contains several important attractions as the Museum Campus Chicago, the Millennium Park, Maggie Daly Park, and much more. I love spending time relaxing in here.
