Chicago…The Windy City. This is a town that is synonymous with two major things, gangsters and sport. And you can easily immerse yourself in both with the likes of the Untouchables Tour and the Cubs, Bears and Bulls sports teams. Get a taste of Al Capone or a ballpark hotdog in this amazing city.
Chicago is a city steeped in some of America’s richest history and yet it maintains a lively, energetic atmosphere that attracts visitors from all over the world. Chicago is famous for its proximity to the water, thanks to its location on the banks of Lake Michigan. A great way to see the city is by boat; many river boats operate like tour buses with some fantastic ‘hop on, hop off‘ stops. If you are on a family holiday to Chicago, the Six Flags Great America is a must visit for children of all ages. It features some of the most exciting theme park rides in America and the kids will love meeting their favourite comic book heroes!
