Explore Chicago.

Those in the know will tell you that both Dallas and Chicago are cities comprised of sides and neighborhoods. Distinct. Unique. Each one full of the possibility for adventure and discovery. When your Southwest flight to Chicago (Midway) lands, you can hop on the Orange Line of the CTA and start exploring immediately. Half an hour aboard will land you in the Loop—what Chicagoans call their downtown—where you can transfer to any other rail line you'd like (or hop aboard a bus). The neighborhoods await—will you explore Pilsen, or Dunning, or Hyde Park?

Chicago is a noted destination for foodie tourists, and with good reason: From Michelin-starred haute cuisine eateries to hole-in-the-wall neighborhood joints, there's something for everyone. But beware: Know that deep dish pizza is just for when your least-cool relatives come to town, and that a Chicago-style hot dog demands that you never, ever look at ketchup. (Some hot dog stands will turn you away if you even ask for it!)

Chicago is a big sports town year round. Take in a baseball game—either the north side team or the south side team, we won't tell you which home team to root for—or check out whatever's happening at the stadium shared by the basketball and hockey teams. The lakefront landmark where the football team plays is a real sight to see. Sports not your thing? Take in a play, an improv show, some standup comedy, staged storytelling, a concert, the symphony—the list goes on. There really is something for everyone in Chi-Town.
