Chicago voted “Best Big City” 5th year running

This week, Chicago was named the Best Big City in the U.S. While we already knew that here at Envisionit, the readers of Condé Nast Traveler made it official by voting Chicago into the top spot for the fifth year in a row — the first large city to do so in the history of the awards.

More than 800,000 savvy travelers voted for their favorite destinations in the 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards. Condé Nast Traveler hailed Chicago’s “impressive architecture, first-rate museums, brilliant chefs, and massive brewing scene”, not to mention our 77 unique neighborhoods, vibrant downtown, and friendly locals.

We’re thrilled to congratulate the City of Chicago and our friends at Choose Chicago on earning this prestigious recognition. The team at Envisionit is proud to work with such a dedicated and talented group, whose work continues to establish Chicago as a world-class travel destination and support the city’s tourism industry during these difficult times. 

We look forward to working together to welcome visitors back to Chicago and continue to show the world why we’re the nation’s best big city.
