The Windy City Will Blow You Away

The Windy City Will Blow You Away Published on .

Windy City Will Blow You Away - Buckingham Fountain Chicago | Just Fly Business

It is little surprise that people have a tendency to go back to Chicago. It looks great, has a fantastic heritage, enjoys cultural attractions aplenty and knows just a thing or two about how to eat. It has also become an alternative to New York for many people, with it offering many of the bells and whistle’s we all know and love about The Big Apple, but with a little more space and time to take it all in.

Here is a small suggestion of what to do with your spare time when you blow in on a business flight to The Windy City.

Talk a Walk by the River

Windy City Will Blow You Away - Chicago River | Just Fly Business

London has the Thames, Paris the Seine and New York the Hudson. Chicago has the wittily titled Chicago River and beneath the mundane name lies some of the great things to do and see in the city.

Taking in much of the best the city has to offer, the city’s Riverwalk meanders past notable sites such as The Wrigley Building and the Gothic Tribune Towers. Accompanied by the backdrop of the stunning cityscape, the kayaking and boating action taking place on the river itself will catch your eye and the countless bars and restaurants will be another distraction to your walk as you no doubt stumble upon other attractions here.

Full of Beans

Chicago Bean - Windy City Will Blow You Away | Just Fly Business

You will know Chicago’s Bean. No, you will; it has been featured in countless movies and TV scenes since 2004 and you will recognise it. The Bean, or the Cloud Gate to give it its official title, is a stunning piece of reflective sculpture by Anish Kapoor. Sitting in Millennium Park, it is a popular attraction in an already popular part of the city which is a delight to spend time soaking up the urban atmosphere.

The City’s the Word

First opening in 2017, Chicago’s American Writer’s Museum is a must visit for anyone interested in American literature. A great deal of time and attention was clearly spent on the museum and its exhibits, and the work has really paid off. In an incredibly entertaining way, everything from Steinbeck to Twain is covered. With interactive exhibits too, some which even let you improve on the writing of classics such as Huckleberry Finn, it is a fantastic way to spend a tenner.

Blue Nights

Chicago was built on hard work; it was also built on The Blues, and taking the chance to see where this musical genre really got off the ground is an opportunity not to be missed. There are countless pubs, bars and openings throughout the city serving up traditional Blues music, and the food and drink that goes with it! Three to check out are, Kingston Mines, Rosa’s Lounge and Buddy Guy’s.

Pizza and Posh

Chicago Deep Pan Pizza -Windy City Will Blow You Away | Just Fly Business

As much as Blues music was developed here, so too was the all-American pizza – deep pan and doughy. For the best in Chicago pizzas, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Gino’s East and Pequod’s Pizzeria are certainly worth a slice. If you want something altogether a little more upmarket, head to Macy’s and celebrity chef Rick Bayless’ fine cuisine.
