The Windy City is a great place to find top-notch restaurants, see a professional sporting event, learn about Midwestern history, attend a convention, conduct business and more. Before we get you to Chicago IL hotels let’s take a look at some background information on the area.
Chicago, with its over 2.7 million inhabitants, is the most populous city in both Illinois and the Midwest United States. Bordering Chicago is Lake Michigan to the east and several suburbs to the north, west and south. Altogether the Chicagoland area is home to roughly 10 million people. After being organized as a town on August 12, 1833, Chicago grew from a population of 200 to over 6,000 people in a matter of seven years. Having been incorporated on March 4, 1837, the city was the world’s fastest growing for several decades, during which time circa-1848 the creation of the Chicago Board of Trade formed the world’s first-ever standardized exchange-traded forward contracts, or futures contracts. One of its earliest convention centers was called the Wigwam, which hosted Abraham Lincoln’s presidential nomination at the 1860 Republican National Convention. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 caused the city to rebuild using steel and stone materials, and in 1885 Chicago constructed the world’s first skyscraper, ironically named the Home Insurance Building. Perhaps the most famous, and definitely the most notorious, Chicago inhabitant was Al Capone, an organized crime boss of the Chicago Outfit who in 1929 ordered the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre on Chicago’s north side.
Today, Chicago is largely known for its sports, food and finance. Chi-town is one of the few United States cities with two professional baseball teams, the Chicago Cubs on the Northside and the Chicago White Sox on the Southside. The Chicago Bears (football), the Chicago Blackhawks (hockey) and the Chicago Bulls (basketball) make up the other professional teams. Great food can be found throughout Chicagoland. Finance and big business are located in the south Loop area, where the Chicago Board of Trade and Willis Tower can be found. The most populous Midwest city, Chicago has attractions that include the Museum of Science and Industry, The Field Museum, The Art Institute, Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Soldier Field, The United Center, Wrigley Field, Guaranteed Rate Field, McCormick Place and Lincoln Park Zoo, to name a few. Now that we have some background information on the city, it’s time to get you to Chicago IL hotels that will help provide for an exceptional experience.
