kateChicago is a bustling metropolis filled with culture and exciting activities. In the downtown area you can find museums for every interest, take a walk down Magnificent Mile and visit the many shopping stores, and climb to the top of the Willis Tower to get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful skyline.

In the summer, tourists and Chicago locals head to one of the many sandy beaches on Lake Michigan to lay in the sun and swim in the water. The lake is so big it seems like a salt-free ocean. People take boat rides, go sailing, walk along the Navy Pier, and ride in the ferris wheel. I also love to go to the many music festivals or food festivals found all over the city.

In the winter, you can go ice skating at Millennium Park next to the famous Bean statue and cross country skiing in the forest preserve. kate-skiMany people will go on weekend excursions to downhill ski at a nearby ski hill. Around Christmas time the Christkindl market held downtown is a must see. It is a German inspired market with mulled wine, potato pancakes, booths from around the world (but mainly Germany) where you can by presents, a huge Christmas tree and Santa’s House for kids. I have a collection of mugs from every Christkindl market I have been to.

I was born and raised on the northwest side of the city in a residential area. All of Chicago neighborhoods have neighborhood parks and are known for different activities you can do in them. Every day in high school I would take a 45 minute El train ride to my high school in another part of the city. This is a typical way for students and professionals that work downtown to get around because we have a wonderful and extensive public transportation system. We have elevated trains, subway trains, and buses that go everywhere in the city. It is a much more practical and cheaper way to get around because parking is scarce and expensive downtown.
