  • Hidden gem! Get the tour from historian Jan Lorys and you will not be disappointed!! Most of the Polish exhibit at the 1939 world's fair in nyc is here. Great polish history, art, and cultural artifacts.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
