Chicago travel tips

1) Take a walk along Lake Michigan in Chicago

It’s impossible to be in Chicago and not walk along the 30-kilometre Lakefront Trail. You can go for a walk, bike or roller-skate, or just go for a morning jog along the lake. While walking along the trail, you can stop at the most beautiful spots or swim. The best beaches are located along 57th Street Beach, Foster Beach, and 31st Street Beach: there are no crowds of tourists here, and the beaches themselves are clean and tidy.

2) Step into a restaurant at The Loop in Chicago with a long history

The Berghoff Restaurant in Chicago is interesting for its history. The restaurant opened back in 1898 and specialised in beer. When Prohibition was introduced in the 1920s, Herman Berghoff did not lose his head and began to produce "almost beer": a soda drink with a beer flavour. Until 1969, only men were allowed into this venue. Today it brews delicious beers and serves German cuisine.

3) Take advantage of the water taxis to get around Chicago and have fun

Using water taxis is not just a way to get from one area of Chicago to another but also entertainment for tourists. Tickets cost $6-10, and you will have an unforgettable but short boat trip along the river.
