The best thing about Chi-Town is that you can visit it over and over without ever getting bored. Chances are, if you have ever traveled here before, you went to Michigan Avenue, saw a game at Wrigley Field, and strolled through the gorgeous Millennium Park.

However, the next time you arrive; do your best to the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum, Reggie’s Rock Club and Record Breakers, and Paseo Boricua and Humboldt Park. Stop by Sidekicks for an old school karaoke experience you will not find anywhere else, too!
