Chicago: One of the Most Important Cities in the US
Developed along the Lake Michigan, Chicago is one of the 10 most important cities in the world. This big metropolis downtown, The Loop, is marked by the huge presence of skyscrapers: even if you will not find here more skyscrapers than in New York, you will see a skyline dominated by these high towers.
Its climate is typically continental: winters can be extremely cold in winter, with periods in which temperature does not go beyond 0°, or extremely hot, with peaks 35° during the day.
Chicago is the city with most drawbridges in the world: 45, all along its river and lake.
