Is there more to Chicago than a murky mafia past and a city center packed with skyscrapers? Of course there is – a weekend trip to Chicago gives you plenty of time to explore what this historic and interesting destination has to offer. Get your bearings in the city by taking the elevator to the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center, where a viewing platform provides a stunning 360-degree panorama. There's even a glass wall that tilts you out over the city streets, 1,000 feet in the air. If you haven't a head for heights, take to two wheels and explore the Lakefront Trail by bike. Leave time for stops at the city's green spaces, especially at Lincoln Park and its free zoo. Finally, all that exploring will help you work up an appetite for Chicago's classic deep dish pizza. Lou Malnati's Pizzeria serves the best pizza pies in town, and it's the perfect place to round off your Chicago city break.
