Located on the banks of Lake Michigan, Chicago has a big-city vibe set in the middle of the Midwest. Famous for Al Capone and the Sears Tower (now Willis Tower), Chicago has much more to offer than deep-dish pizza and architecture. From the festivities of Navy Pier to the masterpieces of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Windy City has numerous cultural opportunities for the active mind. If sports are your choice, look no further than the city’s numerous championship-winning sports teams: Chicago Bears (NFL), Chicago Blackhawks (NHL), Chicago Bulls (NBA), Chicago Cubs (MLB), and Chicago White Sox (MLB).

Transportation

For transportation, the iconic “L-train” can take you all over the city on its elevated tracks. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) operates bus routes between Downtown and O’Hare International Airport and Midway Airport, as well as north-south routes up and down the city.

Disclosure: A Place for Mom refers to "nursing home" here generally as an umbrella term to include assisted living facilities. It is not used to indicate that the facility meets official state requirements for level of care of a skilled nursing facility, as defined in that particular jurisdiction.
