Chicago, Such a good surprise !

Most people we know told us to do not go there, but let me tell you, we are both very glad we did.
We were lucky to find a host in Chicago via Couch surfing.
Here is the link to create your CS profil, you can also check if there is any event in the city even if you never host or be hosted. ( https://www.couchsurfing.com/

Not a lot to say though, below are some informations about things to do there.
