In a previous blog post, I mentioned that Chicago was listed as the most stressful city in the United States by Forbes.com.  Apparently Chicagoans play as hard as they work, because Forbes.com also reported on the most entertaining American cities.  With over 35,000 restaurants it’s no surprise that New York came in first.  But Chicago came in second, with over 15,000 restaurants, as well as tons of bars, cultural institutions and sporting venues.
45 million tourists annually can’t be wrong.  If you’re going to Chicago corporate housing to visit the grandkids, or for any other extended stay, be sure to pick up free passes to many museums from the local public library.  Summertime is arguably the best time to see Chicago for the 26 miles of lakefront along the city’s shore there are 15 miles of beaches.  But there are events year round—from seeing any of the more than 261 live theatre venues, to cheering on any of the 6 sports teams, Chicago will keep you on your feet during your temporary stay.
