The Second City, the Windy City, Chi-Town. Whatever you call it, you love it.

All of your favorite artists performing in Grant Park surrounded by the gorgeous Chicago summer skyline? Yes, please.

3. In fact, summer in the city is one of your favorite things.

Going to the beach, visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo, and don’t even get us started on the rooftop bars.

4. And winter in the city is cold. Like, really cold.

Sure, you’ve survived a few polar vortexes. Who hasn’t?

5. It isn’t “Cloud Gate” or the “Giant Bean”. It’s just The Bean.

Alright, maybe its official name is “Cloud Gate”. But nobody ever calls it that. Ever.

6. And it’s not the Willis Tower either. It is always the Sears Tower.

Say “Willis Tower” to a Chicagoan and expect their face to turn to disgust.

7. The best kind of pizza is Lou Malnati’s pizza.

Nothing beats riding the Ferris Wheel, sitting in the beer garden, and taking in the gorgeous views.
