Located in southern California, Los Angeles is a sprawling city that is best known as the center of a much beloved film and television industry. If you are visiting Los Angeles for your first time, take a selfie with the iconic Hollywood sign then venture on over to the star-studded walk of fame where you can spend the hour walking among the many greats of Hollywood. From there, head on over to studios such as Paramount Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers for behind-the-scenes tours!

Apart from its star-studded attractions, Los Angeles is also a cultural hub boasting more than 100 museums, home to an ever-expanding tech industry, and a mecca of major league sports teams (9 of them to be exact!).

"She is novelty; for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time." - Mark Twain

Chicago is the land of food, architecture, and as locals are proud to announce “summering” (yes, Chicagoans love their summer’s so much they have turned “summer” into a verb to live by). Chicago is a vibrant city full of an array of both fast paced and leisure activities. Enjoy a day viewing public art displays, wandering the many parks, shopping, dining, listening to Chicago’s famous live blues and jazz musicians, or simply taking in the astounding architecture of the city. Its picturesque skyline sits directly on the waters of Lake Michigan, offering beach lovers an ideal retreat. Foodies will find comfort in Chicago’s deep dish pizzas, piled high hot dogs, or Italian beef sandwiches and history buffs will find their fix at Chicago's many fabulous museums. As the third largest US city, sprawling 234 square miles, Chicago is one of those cities that always has something new to offer even to the most veteran of travelers!
