Chicago is known as the “Windy City.” It’s one of the most exciting cities in the USA. It’s also home to one of the best gay scenes in the country. You’ll find many gay bars in the Boystown district: a great place to begin if you’re visiting Chicago.
Deep dish pizza, the mob, jazz music and that Frank Sinatra song are widely associated with Chicago. It’s packed with museums and it still has a great music scene, making Chicago a true cultural powerhouse. It’s the third biggest city in America by population.
