Travel Fun Facts: Chicago

I LOVE Chicago. I’ve been there 3 times. With each visit I fall in love with the city more and more. Sigh… one day… I’ll live there.

Here are some interesting (and odd) facts I looked up about Chicago during my trip there in March:

  •  Chicago River is the only river in the world that flows backwards.
  • Chicago offers locals and  guests about 40 museums, more than 150 theaters and over 6,000 restaurants!
  • The metropolitan Chicago area is home to over 30 Fortune 500 companies!
  • The Twinkie was invented in Chicago in 1930.
