America’s second city, Chicago has an insatiable appetite for anything new and cool.
Home to a list of firsts longer than its (and once the world’s) tallest tower, Chicago isn’t shy to make its presence known. The grid patterned city is the birthplace of the skyscraper and a fanatic of new design. Many famous architects have left their mark on the city’s skyline while artists have filled in eye-level gaps with cutting-edge public art.
Its live music, particularly jazz and blues, is unbeatable and the food, drool-worthy. Situated on Lake Michigan, Chicago also makes a great road trip base from which you can wander out to state parks and lakeside retreats.
Sights to see
Chicago – the famous Windy City – is bursting with larger than life characters and a vibrant American attitude. A true melting pot of cultures and traditions, Chicago's 3 million residents hail from all corners of the world, with Irish, Italian, German, Polish, Mexican and Asian immigrant forebears.
Escape to simpler days gone by with a 2 hour drive to Elkhart, Indiana, also known as Amish County. Amish settlers first trekked and settled there from Pennsylvania in the 19th Century and the life they established has remained relatively unchanged since then. They have isolated themselves from the conventions of modern technology, such as internet and electricity in favour of a humble, rural life that encourages manual labour, according to their interpretation of God's word. The 90 mile self-guided audio Heritage Tour is a perfect introduction to this community's history and customs. Play it in the car and meander through the beautiful Midwestern countryside, passing quaint little towns on the way. Places of interest include Heritage Trail Quilt Gardens and the still functional Bonneyville Mill, built in the 1830s. A direct contrast to Chicago's urban jungle, it's a once in a lifetime experience specific to this region!
Some 80 miles North East of Chicago lies Lake Geneva, a sleepier city than Chicago, that, even so, boasts an impressive array of attractions. Take a tour of Geneva Lake in a special luncheon cruise, complete with fireworks display. Walk in the 21-mile-long Lake Geneva Shore Path, created by the Potawatomi Indians, which spans the lake's entire perimeter. On the way, pass mansions erected centuries ago, in an informative and active hike fit for all the family, featuring some breath-taking views! Ski down the Alpine Valley during winter, or gaze into the heavens at the Yerkes Observatory. Zip-line through the trees at a canopy tour, or take yourself downtown for a spot of shopping. It's all possible here, and it's only an hour and a half's drive away! Rent a car with easyCar now!
