A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.

There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, make a trip to Cloud Gate, and enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.

New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Keep things going the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral and then go for a walk through Central Park.
