Here are some comments from Baird & Warner’s own Tom Gill.

According to Travel+Leisure magazine, Chicago is now the second best rated city in the United States and Canada, jumping ahead one spot from last year. As a lifelong Chicago native, this comes as no surprise considering the many things the city has to offer, especially during the summertime.

When it comes to activities like baseball games, museums, festivals, zoos and parks, it is difficult to match what Chicago has to offer. The White Sox have a three game lead into the AL central heading into the All-Star Break, and the Cubs have future stars in the making in Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro.

One of the things I love almost as much as sports is food. Highlighted by Chicago style hot dogs, deep dish pizza, and Italian beef, there is endless amounts of delicious food to enjoy when visiting the city. Whether you are just visiting Chicago or planning to relocate to the city, taking a trip into the loop or magnificent mile is a perfect way to experience a city its residents love so dearly. A city that has enveloped a hard working attitude and culture that people take pride in.

If considering a trip into the city, I strongly encourage it. It is nearly impossible to run out of things to do, and sites to see. Choosechicago.com, is a great website that lists all events in the city and is the center for Chicago tourism. According to their website, more than 42 million people visited last year, and tourism accounts for about $600 million in tax revenue alone. With good reason, Chicago tourism is flourishing. People are taking notice, and people are visiting.
