  Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Chicago, Illinois.   Chicago is the home of the blues and the truth of jazz, the heart of comedy and the idea of the skyscraper. Here, the age of railroads found its center, and airplanes followed suit. Butcher of hogs and believer in progress, it is one of the world's great cities, and yet the metropolitan luxuries of theater, shopping, and fine dining have barely put a dent in real Midwestern friendliness. It's a city with a swagger, but without the surliness or even the fake smiles found in other cities of its size.   As the hub of the Midwest, Chicago is easy to find — its picturesque skyline calls across the waters of Lake Michigan, a first impression that soon reveals world-clazz museums of art and science, miles of sandy beaches, huge parks and public art, and perhaps the finest downtown collection of modern architecture in the world.   With a wealth of iconic sights and neighborhoods to explore, there's enough to fill a visit of days, weeks, or even months without ever seeing the end. Dress warm in the winter, and prepare to cover a lot of ground: the meaning of Chicago is only found in movement, through subways and archaic elevated tracks, in the pride of tired feet and eyes raised once more to the sky.   Finding Internet access when out and about can be problematic so carry your mobile guidebook in the palm of your hand. We include a fully linked Table of Contents and internally to access context-specific information quickly and easily when offline. Many web links are included as well for additional information.    Contents:     Welcome To Chicago   Key Districts   Overview     Climate     Literature     Movies     Smoking     Tourist Information   Arrivals     By plane       O'Hare       Midway       Others     By bus     By train     By car   Local Transportation     By public transit       CTA       Metra and South Shore       Pace     By car     By taxi     By bicycle     By water taxi   Sightseeing Highlights     Itineraries     Museums     Architecture     African-American history     Ethnic neighborhoods   Fun Activities     Beaches     Parks     Events & Festivals     Sports     Theater     Bicycles   Studying   Working   Shopping Highlights    Dining Guide      Chicago pizza     The Chicago hot dog     Italian Beef   Bars, Clubs & Drinking     Jazz and Blues     Concerts   Accommodation Guide   Safety & Security   Communications     Internet     Telephones   Local Help      Publications     Religious services     Foreign consulates   Local & Day Trips      Illinois     Indiana     Michigan     Wisconsin
