Chicago is one of the central midwestern United States' hot tourism cities and transportation hubs. Located on the banks of tranquil Lake Michigan, it is sometimes called "the Windy City". The skyscrapers of Chicago stand tall like a forest of buildings. Many of them are unique architectural landmarks that are a gorgeous representation of the region. All sorts of people historically have immigrated to Chicago, bringing their culture, food and music to the city, and have woven it all together into a brightly colored tapestry. The passion of baseball games and the beat of lively music are puzzle pieces that make up the city’s astounding energy. With regards to the field of public arts, Chicago is even more of a leader. Creative sculptures and brightly painted walls line public parks, green spaces and the city’s famous commercial district, the Magnificent Mile.
