It’s only natural that a trip to Chicago will have you make like Bueller, and take a day off to explore the heart of downtown. From jazz clubs to art institutes, there is something truly captivating about the Loop. However, the windy City is much more than skyscrapers, deep dish pizza and Grant Park.

1. For foodies and beer lovers: Lincoln Square
Only half-hour ride from downtown Chicago; Lincoln Square is one trendy place. An Old world heritage meets modern charm, with smatterings of its old German roots, the neighbourhood is an eclectic enclave that’s boasts an array of restaurants, bars and boutiques. For a mean pilsner head to Huettenbar and then straight onto Gene’s Sausage Shop. Finish your evening at the Old Town School of Folk Music for some live entertainment.
