Like most big American cities, fine dining in Chicago is very, very impressive. But for those not looking to splurge, Chicago's fast casual dining and street food scene are raved about. From pizza and hot dogs to pretzels and pop corn, there are some decadent eats to be enjoyed without breaking the bank. If you're visiting in the summer, one of Chicago's best assets is 100% free - the lake. Chicago's downtown is nestled adjacent to beautiful boardwalks and sandy beaches, and the crisp, clear waters of Lake Michigan. Take a bike ride, take a stroll, jump into a game of beach volleyball, and take it all in.
