Get to know one of the city's most cultural quarters by viewing its street art, historic churches and houses, and the Congress Theater. Logan Square is one of the most interesting areas to visit in the West Side.
While NYC has Times Square and LA has Hollywood Boulevard, Chicago has the Loop. Walk the Magnificent Mile here to browse the best department stores and see iconic skyscrapers such as the John Hancock Center. Head up the Observatory for panoramic views of Chicago's stunning skyline.
One of the most ethnically diverse areas of the city, the Southwest Side encapsulates its cultural mix. The students love the fabulous Mexican, Italian, and fast-food restaurants here. Check out the rather unique Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture and the Polish Highlanders Alliance of North America, where you can relax at the bar with a Polish beer.
In the Far Southeast Side is one of the city's most fascinating historic spots. Come to this mostly residential area to learn about Chicago's industrial and political origins, and visit the National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum.
