Chicago city

Take a cheap flight to the windy city and be blown away by all it has to offer.

America’s third largest city, Chicago sits on the shores of Lake Michigan in the heart of the Midwest. The birthplace of the skyscraper, this city is a highlight for architecture enthusiasts. For the easy way to take in the dramatic skyline, jump on a Chicago river cruise.

Millennium Park offers loads of activities for families on holiday in Chicago, along with a spectacular collection of landscape design and art. Enjoy Chicago’s buzzing jazz and blues scene, or scream yourself silly on the wild rides and waterslides at the Six Flags amusement park.
