Plan a City Break To Chicago
Although Springfield is the capital of the state, it is the 6th largest city in Illinois. Chicago is however the 3rd largest city in the whole of the country, after New York and L.A. and has one of the largest economies in the world. 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! If you are wanting to get a great overview of the city, head to the Willis Tower which has a great observation deck. 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.
