Every journey begins somewhere. And the journey to discover America—the real America—begins in a place called Chicago. This world-class destination, with its stunning architecture, endless shopping and renowned museums, is also a great starting point to explore Route 66, Mississippi River Country, presidential history, and other Illinois attractions that reveal the American way of life.
