Chicago history, facts, trivia, song lyrics, quotations, quips, and area resources

Chicago, in our humble opinion, is THE greatest city! We have the most gorgeous skyline, the greatest lake shore, the best shopping, and the weather ... well, never mind the weather - if Chicago had San Diego's weather, they'd have to call us "Paradise."

Chicago Collections is a tribute to Chicago. We've collected interesting and unusual facts about the history of Chicago, obscure, illuminating, or humorous quotations and quips about Chicago, and song lyrics that address Chicago.

We hope you enjoy your visit with us, and if we've left anything out, please let us know!
