Some facts and pictures about Chicago.

I visited Chicago in summer 2007. It is a beautiful city which I didn't know had a marina as it is on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Chicago has incredible architecture, such as the salient Sears Tower. The biggest city in the Mid-West and indeed between the East and West Coasts. It is a must see!
