With a population of nearly 3 million, Chicago is the cultural, industrial and commercial center of the Midwest. The Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Science and Industry, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Oceanarium, and Adler Planetarium — a few of the city's nationally known museums — draw millions of visitors each year. Those who enjoy the performing arts have many options too, including the world-famous Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and numerous theater groups. Chicago's universities and colleges stimulate cultural creativity and appreciation. Art in all its forms—music, dance, drama, painting, sculpture—is part of the Chicago scene.
For recreation, entertainment, and sheer enjoyment, Chicago provides a wide range of extraordinary opportunities. Major league baseball, professional basketball, football, and hockey, and any number of collegiate sporting events, attract thousands of enthusiastic spectators. Winter and summer recreation areas for skiing, jogging, hiking, swimming, sailing, playing tennis, and golfing are located in the many parks of the city and surrounding area.
