The Tripbase Awards 2011


The Tripbase award for the best blogs about Chicago are the result of a long and laborious process whereby every relevant website is evaluated until our discerning judges decided on a list they were happy with. Given the sheer number out there, it wasn't an easy task.

Join the crowd of 33 million people per year that visit Chicago and see why the numbers are so high. Chicago boasts an entertainment and music scene that is home of the ‘blues', and flaunts many different venues throughout the city. For the shoppers at heart, the Magnificent Mile is, well, magnificent. It hosts independent designer shops, enormous department stores and multi-level malls. Even those that lack an interest in shopping can appreciate the outstanding display of stores that line the streets.

Chicago isn't all music and stores, despite the prevalence of both. The city is host to many different cultural neighborhoods, such as Greek town, Little Italy, and Chinatown. Explore the shops, restaurants, and activities pertinent to each community to get a feel for the cultural diversity that is prevalent throughout the city. But do not leave Chicago until you have eaten the very famous Chicago Style Pizza. Known throughout the world as a favorite, it is hard to replicate and must be enjoyed in the city that created it.

If your mouth is watering and you're ready to explore the Windy City, check out the links below to see the best blogs that we found that have captured the essence of all that is Chicago.
