If you are planning a trip to America and after an unforgettable trip to a large city, make sure you come to Chicago. In the Northern state of Illinois, you will not be disappointed about booking a Chicago vacation rental as there is so much to see and do here. Although Springfield is the capital of the state, it is the 6th largest city in Illinois.

This can be seen demonstrated in the breathtaking skyline here, found in the Downtown District. Across the city, you can see fantastic skyscrapers from all sorts of shapes and heights!

At a height of 1,353 feet, it is definitely not suitable for those with a fear of heights! The views over the city are breathtaking and you can see the port of Chicago in the distance.
