Chicago 6 months of the year are winter, when this "City of Cold Wind" was very snowy. But when May comes and the weather gets warmer, everyone flocks to the outdoors to have fun, baseball fields, lakeside beaches and beer gardens.
Writer Nelson Alberto commented Glenn is the city of love Chicago "Love is like a flat nose of a woman, you have every reason to look for better and best, but it is difficult to find so real."
Last winter in the United States When, I spent three days and two nights to Chicago excursion once. From New York non-stop, and then back to New York . Been to Chicago After that, New York 's status as my favorite city became precarious. Chicago is a city pierced by water, with tall buildings, scenery, bustling but not messy.
Chicago 's attractions are relatively concentrated, basically all in downtown, which can be reached on foot. But perhaps because he did not go to Chicago A messy place, it left a good impression on me. Chicago southern referred to as Chicago 's most dangerous neighborhoods, black settlements, but also the shooting areas of high incidence. The Chicago University, also in Chicago South, so we did not go for safety reasons.

The most famous food in Chicago is the thick-bottomed pizza, which can be eaten in many shops along the road. I saw giordano's as the number one restaurant on the hornet's nest, and it was very close to Millennium Park, so I decided to choose there.
This business is very hot, we waited about 40 minutes before we went in. Pizza can be ordered first, and the side dishes inside can also be chosen. A 6-inch pizza is enough for two people.

United States has been intensified since mid-November with an excellent atmosphere. The dazzling array of decorations, Christmas promotions, and various stalls on the streets make this festival like a long and grand carnival.
It was already dark when I went that day, and the dim light was turned on, and it was more atmospheric. The Christmas market in Chicago is very lively. There are houses with spires on the street, selling all kinds of handmade Christmas ornaments, pendants, and many delicacies.
The little gadgets are made very delicate and cute, and of course the price is quite expensive. A little soldier’s doll costs more than 100 dollars.
On cold nights, the most suitable thing is to drink a cup of hot cocoa to warm your stomach. There are many shops selling hot cocoa in this Christmas market. If I remember correctly, it costs $10 for a cup, and a small Christmas cup is also given. This is a good deal.
