Chicago, also known as the Windy City, is the third most populous city in United States, even after a devastating fire in 1871. It is located on the shores of Lake Michigan, which contributes to Chicago having many port facilities. Chicago has many things that draw tourists to visit every year. The arts in Chicago include theater companies, an orchestra, ballets, and many forms of live music. Shopping districts, restaurants and museums are also great reasons to visit. Chicago has been named the “Best Sports City” in the country many times, in part because it is home to two Major League Baseball teams, a championship basketball team and a National Hockey League. Since it has a large population and is located near a waterway, Chicago has many forms of transportation, such as airports, passenger rails, and a bicycle sharing program. All of these play a part in Chicago’s economic climate.
