As one of America’s largest cities, Chicago puts you right in the center of the action. There are professional sports, top-level concerts, a slew of shopping opportunities, endless dining options, centuries of history, tons of family fun, romantic evening getaways and more.
For the military, there’s also a great deal of history and respect. In fact, Soldier Field was so named in honor of those who fought in WWI. (Fun fact: Soldier Field didn’t host the NFL’s Chicago Bears until the team moved there in 1971; they played at Wrigley Field prior to that.) Chicago is also the closest major city to the Navy’s largest training station: Naval Station Great Lakes (NSGL). More than 38,000 men and women go through NSGL as part of Navy boot camp, just as they have since the center first opened in 1911.
Let’s be honest: what can’t you do in Chicago? It has everything one would want—one can even drive a bit out of town to find outdoor activities without too much trouble.
