Chicago
closeChicago, the birthplace of the modern skyscraper is still a trendsetter in urban architecture and a must for people interested in 20th century urban architecture.
But the Windy City offers a lot more than architecture alone: it is a bustling city, with a vibrant nightlife and plenty of great museums.
It is also a great city to live in, especially the northern part which has a lively atmosphere and even nice beaches.
