Chicago is a city of opposites, its restaurants being equally notable for cutting-edge cuisine as for down-to-earth fare. There are sandy beaches, summer outdoor festivals and bars that buzz until the early hours of the morning. The Art Institute of Chicago is the United States' second largest art museum and is home to a fabulous array of treasures. Not to be missed, are its impressive collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings and the Miros and Picassos located on the third floor. The Chicago Skydeck is on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower and, as the third tallest building in the world, it offers some spectacular views of Chicago. Those who are not afraid of heights can stand on the glass balcony which extends out from the side of the building offering a breath taking vertical view of the city below.
