Visit the Windy City | Private Jet to Chicago

Destinations > United States > Illinois

“Chicago still remains a Mecca of the Midwest—people from both coasts are kind of amazed how good life is in Chicago, and what a good culture we’ve got. You can have a pretty wonderful artistic life and never leave Chicago.” ~ Harold Ramis

Chicago, known for its iconic skyscrapers and an impressive array of renowned museums, is the jewel of the mid-west, and its location in the heart of the country makes it an important hub for private jet rentals, executive charter flights and corporate jet charters.

From its early beginnings in the mid-19th century, it served as an important transportation hub between the eastern and western United States, thanks to its location between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River.

The city’s first railway was established in 1848, the same year it developed a canal for steamboats and ships to pass from the lakes to the river, creating an economic boom that would influence the U.S. economy for decades to come with a focus on manufacturing, retail and finance.

Today, the Windy City stands as one of the most important cities in the world and an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. Book your private flight with ACA Chicago jet charter service, and learn more about the city in the sections below.

Attractions & Events

Chicago’s cultural value is also comparable to its impact on the country’s economy.

The area has produced artists, writers, poets and performers from a variety of fields and genres, including visual arts, novels, film, theater (primarily improvisational comedy) and music, mainly jazz, blues, soul, gospel and house music; the huge music festival Lollapalooza is held annually at Grant Park every August.

Chi-town has a team in all four major sports (two in baseball), and it’s home to some of the most famous (and infamous) teams in the history of professional sports, from Jordan’s Bulls of the 90’s and the lovable-but-hapless Cubs throughout the entirety of the 20th century, to scandal-ridden Blacksox of the 1919.

Chicago is home to an incredible array of museums and educational attractions, including the Field Museum of Natural History, the Shedd Aquarium and the Adler Planetarium, all located at Chicago’s Museum Campus, a 57-acre park along the shores of Lake Michigan. Soldier Field, home to the NFL’s Chicago Bears, is also located within the park, along with the Lakeside Center of McCormick Place.

Head slightly north and you’ll arrive at perhaps the city’s most famous attraction, Navy Pier, a 3,300-foot pier extending out above Lake Michigan. The pier contains several shops, parks, gardens, restaurants, exhibitions and attractions, including the Centennial Wheel, a nearly 200 feet Ferris-wheel offering unparalleled, 360-degree views of Chicago’s incredible skyline and the expansive Lake Michigan.

The city is also famous as one of the best gastronomic cities in the country, from culinary staples like authentic, deep-dish pizza, classic Chicago-style hot dogs and Italian Corn Beef Sandwiches, to eclectic, adventurous combinations at some of the finest high-end, Michelin star restaurants in this hemisphere.

Exclusive restaurants including Alinea, Boka, GLongman & Eagle, Sepia and 42 grams are located in and around the loop, and offer incredible fine-dining experiences to luxury and executive jet travelers. Check out more of our recommendations after your private flight to Chicago, Illinois.

America’s economy isn’t the only thing shaped by the Windy City – the country’s history and landscape would also be defined by the rise of an Illinoisan named Abraham Lincoln. Issues over the spread of slavery propelled Lincoln to the Presidential nomination at the 1860 Republican National Convention in Chicago. His victory over Stephan Douglas and the policies he implemented would go on to set the stage for the American Civil War.

Chicago’s influence isn’t limited to the United States, either. Despite the Great Fire of 1871 leaving a 4-mile-long section of the city in rubble, most of the city survived, including its railroads and stockyards. New building standards using steel and stone were applied in the rebuilding process, leading to the construction of the world’s first skyscraper in 1885, and the largest building boom in our nation’s history.

The continued growth of the city and its annexation of surrounding neighborhoods drew thousands of immigrants from Europe and the eastern United States, with over three-quarters of Chicago’s population being foreign born as of 1900. This rise in population led to innovative ideas in sanitation and health issues, and the city gained recognition as a leader in public health, creating standards that would be applied in cities across the country.  All of these factors led to 1893, when the city hosted the World’s Columbian Exposition at the present-day location of Jackson Park. The event drew over 27 million visitors, and is considered the most influential world’s fair in history.

The 20th century saw the city’s continual rise, from important cultural events and scientific discoveries to iconic sports teams and mafia origins. A rise in industry thanks to World War I brought a massive migration of workers into the area, creating racial tensions as the African-American community more than quadrupled in population. In 1919, prohibition was ratified as the 18th amendment, ushering in the beginnings of the Gangster Era and introducing America to the likes of Al Capone, Dion O’Banion, Bugs Moran and Tony Accardo. The streets of Chicago transformed into an urban battlefield during this time, with the infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre taking place in 1929.

Prohibition was repealed in 1933, and while the violence ended in the streets, a breakthrough discovery nearly a decade later would bring unimaginable destruction to the air. In 1942, while working on the top-secret Manhattan Project, physicist Enrico Fermi conducted the world’s first controlled nuclear reaction at the University of Chicago, leading to the creation of the first Atomic Bomb used by the United States three years later.
