Life in Chicago
Chicago is a great place to live, work, and play. It is world-renowned for its Magnificent Mile shopping, its top-class restaurants, and of course, its stunning skyline. Our exceptional galleries and museums include the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Field Museum. Explore the fabulous Millennium Park in the heart of the city, where the traditions of architecture, nature and the arts combine to form an urban gathering place of uncommon beauty.
Take a look at Chicago’s diverse and energetic neighborhoods, home to an endless number of restaurants of every imaginable cuisine. Or spend a lazy summer afternoon on the beaches along Lake Michigan. Chicago summers feature the superb food fest known as Taste of Chicago, Lollapalooza and other concerts in Grant Park, and movies under the stars. Watch the Cubsand White Sox, or for a different kind of fireworks, the gala Fourth of July show on the Lakefront. When it gets cold around the holidays, the majestically-lit Michigan Avenue shopping district will warm your spirit. And the Bears, Bulls, and the recent Stanley Cup-champion Blackhawks are nearby fall-winter sporting attractions. The United Center, home to the Bulls and Blackhawks, is just blocks away from the medical campus and hosts numerous concerts and other sporting events throughout the year.
