Few cities are quite as American as Chicago, and it’s an especially ideal destination since it’s typically inexpensive to fly to.

You might also enjoy visiting the Chicago skydeck and catching a view of the whole city from 1,353 feet up. Don’t look down.
In short: Chicago is a great metro area to party in.Find hotels in Chicago
Bourbon, seafood and a salty, coastal breeze — all wrapped up in southern hospitality. Hang out on King Street then head to Red’s Ice House for day drinking before the night begins.

If Montreal’s ideal for folks on the East Coast, Vancouver is the perfect target for West Coasters.
