Chicago is one of those cities that feigns big. Don’t get me wrong, they have the United Center, grandiose architecture, two Major League Baseball teams, and a plethora of high class restaurants. However, nestled in the giant skyrises and dense condominiums there lies a calming peacefulness about it. I think of it as a less pretentious New York City and frankly, I’d choose Chi-town over the Big Apple for my next vacation.
