A city typically associated with brutal winters and shifty politics (that is how Chicago acquired its “Windy City” nickname, after all), Chicago truly comes to life during warmer months, especially summer, and Four Seasons Hotel Chicago has the ideal location for soaking up the buzzing city. With the lakefront path along Lake Michigan constantly bustling with runners, bikers and rollerbladers, weekly fireworks at Navy Pier and an abundance of festivals — Taste of Chicago and Lollapalooza, anyone? — there’s so much to see and do in the city while taking advantage of the gorgeous weather. If you do happen to find yourself in Chicago during the chillier months, don’t worry about staying cooped up in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel — head to Allium, where you can cozy up to the massive fireplace as you enjoy dinner and drinks or explore the city’s museums, top-notch shopping and the ice-skating rink at Millennium Park.
