With a population of around 3 million residents, Chicago is America’s third largest city and one of the world’s most important business centres. Situated beside the south western shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago is a bustling metropolis filled with world-renowned architecture within a multicultural environment. The city is home to the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, America's oldest zoo, the world's first Ferris wheel, and one of the largest municipal libraries and collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings in the world. In fact, when it comes to the world’s “Big Lists”, Chicago is sure to feature prominently.
With an outstanding public transport system, the motorcar is often left redundant in the City of Chicago. With many residents getting around the city through the use of the America’s largest bicycle-sharing system.
The city has first-class healthcare provisions, however, like the rest of America. Healthcare is privatized and can be very expensive, so it is important to ensure that you have full and comprehensive medical insurance as you may be refused treatment without it.
