The City of Broad Shoulders takes a back seat to no one for year-round attractions. Its skyline designed by the world’s greatest architects inspires architects worldwide. Chi-town’s universities, theaters, museums, churches, parks, restaurants, and barbecue options are legendary. If you can tolerate the cold winter, the city’s department stores and boutiques are amazing shopping venues during the holiday season as well.

Chicago’s contribution to the world of Black Media is also noteworthy. The Chicago Defender is one of the most esteemed black newspapers. No account of print publishing can shortchange the breakthrough contributions of John Johnson’s Ebony and Jet magazines. This city also elevated Oprah Winfrey to the highest heights of televised media.
