Aside from the local attractions detailed below, Chicago’s waterfront location and vibrant theater, music, and visual arts venues draw millions of tourists every year.

The Chicago Botanic Gardens, Millennium Park, Morton Arboretum , and the extensive hiking and nature trails attract outdoor enthusiasts from around the world. As a Lake Michigan thoroughfare, Chicago also has many sand beaches lining its waterfront view.
