Chicago & The Great Lakes

Overview

Chicago is the ultimate American city: A breathtaking skyline set on stunning Lake Michigan, unrivalled architecture, fantastic shopping and dining, major league sports and a world–class music scene, especially Blues and Jazz!

Walk along the awesome shore of beautiful Lake Michigan. Take in the impressive views from the Willis Tower. Sip cocktails from the observation deck of the John Hancock Tower. Learn about Chicago’s famous architecture on a river cruise. Chicago is also the start — or end — to your Route 66 Tour , travelling via Illinois’s rolling countryside.

The five Great Lakes comprise the largest freshwater body of water in the world and include eight U.S. states. Michigan is surrounded by four of the five and provides a wonderful road trip opportunity with endless stretches of freshwater beaches, dunes, wineries and orchards. To the north, Mackinac Island is car free and takes you back to a simpler era of grace and leisure.

Detroit sits on the water’s edge and is best–known for the music of Motown and history of Ford Motors. St Louis sits on the Mississippi River and features famous Gateway Arch, and is also well–known for baseball, barbecue and breweries.

Minneapolis is a gateway city and home to the huge Mall of America. Downtown’s indoor pedestrian bridges connect you to 69 blocks of museums and restaurants, and Prince’s Paisley Park is a popular Minneapolis attraction.
