According to one story, Chicago didn't get its nickname "Windy City" from the gusty weather. The name was coined more than 100 years ago by a visiting reporter who noticed Chicagoans couldn't stop boasting about their town. Residents can still brag about their city, considered one of the most successful metropolitan areas in the United States. Let Signature-Midway be your guide to the best that Chicago offers.
