As the city grew, so did the population of German immigrants who helped shape the formation of the city. Today, as skyscrapers grow along banks of Lake Michigan, so grows the cosmopolitan feel of this former trading post. Come and check out this incredibly beautiful city and experience world class restaurants and nightlife and check out elite professional sporting events.
