A visit to Chicago isn't complete without enjoying some world-class jazz, a Cubs baseball game at Wrigley Field, a Bulls basketball game at the United Center or some good old Broadway in Chicago. And we can't forget Da Bears!
Situated on the shores of expansive Lake Michigan, the bold architectural splendor of Chicago has long served as a hub of culture and movement. With close to 3 million residents, Chicago is the third most populous city in the nation - so it's only natural that it should play host to an ever-more exciting array of events, from major touring acts and music festivals to some of the city's favorite names in athletics.
Looking for your chance to catch the best in live music during your stay in the Windy City? Plan your visit around major annual festivals such as Lollapalooza, the Midwest's quintessential multi-day music festival, or the Chicago Blues Festival, the largest free blues festival in the world. Chicago is also home to a vast range of homegrown neighborhood street festivals that span blocks and incorporate live music, food and more into one awesome block party-style affair. Catch other live entertainment ranging from theatre to concerts to dance at favorite Chicago venues such as Lincoln Hall and the Aragon Ballroom.
More of a sports fan? Grab Wrigley Field tickets to see the Chicago Cubs at bat, or get a unique perspective from the historic Wrigley Field Rooftops. Meanwhile, lovers of football should head over to Soldier Field to see the Chicago Bears play. It's also a great place to catch major touring acts.
