Chicago just lost the bid to Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics, but with so much to do and see, this is the last city on the planet that actually needs the games to be an attractive tourist destination. Think great shopping, Broadway shows, non-stop festivals, world class cuisine, and some of the best hotels in the United States to name just a few of the many reasons people visit Chicago.
Aside from the must-see tourist attractions in Chicago, there are a lot of events happening this fall that would make your visit even more enjoyable. During the month of October the city is featuring its local artists through Chicago Artists Month with more than 200 exhibitions.
The city is also known for its theater and this fall presents a wealth of theater productions to choose from. And don’t forget, if you are in the city on a Sunday, make sure to take part in the Chicago tradition of bargains and bargaining with an international flavor at the Maxwell Street Market.
Minutes away from Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile, the Museum of Contemporary Art and multiple trendy boutiques is the luxurious Sofitel Chicago Water Tower Hotel which sits as a sparkling prism in the heart of downtown.
