If you visited New York City, do you think it is worth it to see Chicago?

This is such a horrible question. Why would one not visit Chicago just because they saw NYC?

Chicago is a mega city of course it's worth it.

Lake Michigan is so much more beautiful and blue compared to the water that surrounds Manhattan, that alone makes it worth a visit.

I agree.... just my addition would be international tourist. Then may visit the US once in a lifetime? Then their choices end up NYC and seeing Chicago as too similar (yes I know not really). They would choose LA with its Cali/Hollywood mystic alive a well in the worlds.

This is why Chicago gets a fraction of international tourist vs. NYC. Though Chicago my actually surpass NYC by Domestic tourist. Internationally .... NYC is the quintessential American city to see .... at least first and LA next.

I agree that in reality? Seeing NYC should never rule out a Chicago. Its seen as much less flyover today as its tourism hit 52-million.

The blue hues of lake Michigan are clearly seen in this video.
