School Music Trips to Chicago, Illinois

While the state of Illinois has many cities worth visiting, most school trips lead to Chicago. One of the many reasons includes attractions like Navy Pier, the Midwest’s top tourist destination, and its boardwalk, 150-foot Ferris wheel, boat and segway tours, and countless dining and shopping options. Chicago's Millennium Park offers dazzling music, art, landscape design and architecture--including the mammoth stainless-steel Cloud Gate sculpture, also know as The Bean.

Chicago looks great from every angle, whether you’re exploring the city’s astonishing architecture during a guided tour (on foot or aboard a Chicago River boat, lakeshore cruise or sightseeing bus) or you’re enjoying the birds-eye view from the 103rd floor of Skydeck Chicago in the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) or the 94th floor Hancock Observatory. The city also boasts 29 miles of lakefront paths, making Chicago one of the world’s most walkable and beautiful cities. School music groups may want to take in a performance at the renowned Chicago Symphony Hall.
