Chicago Love!!! Check Out These Windy City Themed Paintings Coming Up This Month!Sinatra said it best, “… And each time I roam, Chicago is calling me home, Chicago is why I just grin like a clown – It’s my kind of town…”
Chicago is (in our completely biased opinion), one of the BEST cities in the world! With so many incredible sights to see and things to do, this famous city is an exciting place to live and a wonderful area to visit.
Chicago is the 3rd most populous city in the US and is well-known throughout the country for it’s architecture, sports teams, and deep dish pizza. :)
Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837 and has been growing, rapidly ever since (in 1900 Chicago was one of the five largest cities in the world). Today, over 2.7 million people reside there!
Not only do millions of people live in the city but it attracts over 50 million tourists a year! Chicago welcomed a record 58 million domestic and international visitors in 2018 making it the second most visited city in the nation after New York.
*Not to mention all of the people who make a stop through the city on a layover, as O’Hara airport is one of the businesses airports in the world!
Chicago is an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. It was the site of the creation of the first standardized futures contracts at the Chicago Board of Trade, which today is the largest and most diverse derivatives market in the world, generating 20% of all volume in commodities and financial futures. The region also has the largest number of U.S. highways and greatest amount of railroad freight
More than 400 neighborhood festivals are celebrated annually in Chicago, most during the warm summer months, including the music of blues, jazz, and country.
'Sporting News' named Chicago the "Best Sports City" in the United States in 1993, 2006, and 2010.
Along with Boston, Chicago is the only city to continuously host major professional sports since 1871, having only taken 1872 and 1873 off due to the Great Chicago Fire. Fans of the White Sox, Cubs, and Bulls have been calling Chicago their home team for decades and there’s no risk of that changing, anytime soon!
