Best time to visit Chicago

Chicago has severe winters and hot summers. For milder weather, it is best to visit Chicago in the shoulder months of April – May or September – October when average temperatures range from 12 – 20 degrees Celsius.

Consider visiting in this bargain season only if you can brave the harsh weather.

Best places to stay in Chicago

37 movable bridges, waters as blue as the Caribbean, fierce rivalry in food innovation, and a thriving ground for music and major league sports; that’s Chicago for you! Also known as the Windy City, Chicago is an enterprising city with a rich culture and history. It is a city of neighbourhoods, and each one has a distinct character and vibe.

The Loop

Downtown Chicago, known as The Loop is the main business district with several office buildings as well as the administrative government buildings, making this a fairly busy and bustling area on week days. If you want dramatic views of the Chicago skyline, a short walk to the waterfront, or you plan to visit the Chicago museums, this is a good area to stay while you explore the rest of the city. Stay at the opulent and historical Palmer House A Hilton Hotel or enjoy unobstructed views of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan from The Blackstone Hotel on South Michigan Avenue.

The Magnificent Mile

The one mile stretch from North Michigan Avenue to Oak Street boasts some of the most luxurious accommodations in Chicago.
