Chicago, the third largest city in the country, is a bustling center for global enterprise, commerce and culture. The city is home to many major business and financial headquarters, robust science and engineering industries, numerous manufacturing companies, a burgeoning technology field, and several major financial and futures exchanges. Chicago celebrates a rich cultural history complete with world-class architecture, museums, universities, and arts and entertainment.
Incorporated as the City of Chicago in March of 1837, the city began to grow at a feverish pace as a trading center. Growth was fueled by the fact that it was a major transportation hub between the eastern and western states. The completion of the Illinois and Michigan Canal in 1848 created a vital water link between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. But, it was the advent of a nationwide railroad network that placed Chicago at the heart of the American freight industry. Still today, 50 percent of all U.S. rail freight continues to pass through the city, and it has become one of the nation’s busiest aviation centers. The City of Chicago abounds with a variety of attractions and entertainment options, including famous skyscrapers, historic landmarks, performing arts venues, restaurants, distinctive fine art, beaches, parklands and is home to sports teams in each of the major professional leagues. Between the city’s shores on Lake Michigan and its outlying spaces of parks and prairie, Chicago is a unique mix of urban grandeur and Midwestern charm. With its culture, history and accessibility alike, “The Windy City” continues to be a destination that draws people from across the country and around the world.
