Chicago is the third-most populated city in the US. It is located on the shores of Lake Michigan, and thanks to many green parks and gardens it is called City in a Garden. It was created on the swampy and inhospitable shores of the lake, but thanks to its strategic location, it soon became a major trading venue for all those who wanted to get their industrial or agricultural products to the east. The Windy City (second nickname of Chicago) will blow you away with its stunning architecture and many cultural and sport events (if you're football or baseball fan you will love it).
