Chicago, Illinois

Wheelchair Accessible Travel Guide


The Windy City. Architecture. Deep Dish Pizza. House Music. Sports.

Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States, with more than 2.7 million residents. Incorporated as a city in 1837, but originally settled in the 1780s, Chicago sits along the banks of Lake Michigan. The city rose in prominence during the Industrial Revolution and is now a center of commerce, finance and innovation in the Midwest. Chicago attracts more than 40 million tourists each year. The city's history, art and architecture, cuisine and professional sports franchises are only a part of the city's draw. The city receives an excellent rating in our accessibility score metric and is a top destination for disabled travelers.
