Chicago Local Deals
Residents in Chicago will tell you the city comes alive in spring and summer, bringing people out in droves to celebrate the warm weather.
But it’s the world-class restaurants, theater, spas and activities that keep them there year-round, and brings travelers from both near and far. Much of the activity takes places along the lakefront and the beautiful greenspaces near Michigan Avenue. Look for bike and Segway outings, historical boat and walking tours, and adventure in the kitchen or in the sky.
Visitors will find a microcosm of the world with the diverse dining options found downtown and on the north, south and west sides. All is takes is to walk a few blocks to find a restaurant that’s either Zagat rated or with a chef that has a Michelin star. Visitors should note that the city and its cooking has many Mexican, Greek and Italian influences.
Chicago is home to one of the Midwest’s only AAA 5-Diamond spas and many other luxurious offerings, some even with treatment rooms for facials, massages and nail treatments overlooking Lake Michigan.
