The great windy city of Chicago is truly a place that is a must-visit for any gay traveler. The city is filled with cultural and architecturally rich neighborhoods and gorgeously designed parks. There isn’t a better place on earth that holds all the pleasures of the gay traveler. Historical theater marquees and landmark skyscrapers loom over the magnificent downtown skyline, while numerous thriving cafes and boutiques lay directly under it. The populations of Lakeview and Anderson sections of the city invite travelers to ogle their window displays as they pass by sipping on hot and deliciously frothy espressos. Unlike coastal cities, Chicago has no beach, but that doesn’t seem to stop the sun-worshippers who gather at the numerous lakefront spots all over the city.
