Chicago’s central location makes it accessible from anywhere in the United States, whether you’re from the coasts, the south or the Midwest. Chicago is a great city that has easy and sensible transportation and many options for dining and entertainment.

Chicago is the third most populous metro in the U.S. with a population of over 9.5 million people. The city is famous for its Chicago-style deep dish pizza, background in the jazz music scene and notable architecture, including the Willis Tower (referred to by Chicagoans as Sears Tower), the TILT thrill ride in the John Hancock Building and the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio.

Quirk’s Chicago will take place in Festival Hall B of Navy Pier (use Entrance 2), a city landmark that overlooks Lake Michigan, one of North America’s five Great Lakes. You won’t need to travel far from the event to find great things to do, as Navy Pier includes a lot of shopping, restaurants and attractions.
